VIDEO - Ynet has obtained footage showing Israeli police officers arresting an 11-year-old Palestinian who threw stones at security forces in the West Bank village of Nabi Salah on January 25.

 

In the video the officers can be seen putting the boy, Karim al-Tamimi, in a police vehicle after chasing him down.

 

Security forces and Palestinians clash in Nabi Salah on an almost weekly basis.

Video: Nariman al-Tamimi

The boy's father, Salah al-Tamimit told Ynet police agreed to release the boy only when a group of left-wing activists arrived at the station and after he agreed to pay a NIS 2,000 (about $550) fine should the boy take part in any future disturbances.

 

Shai Sub-District Police said, "The boy was apprehended after throwing stones at security forces and was later taken to a police station. The arresting officers had no way of knowing how old the boy was because he was not carrying any identification. The boy was released as soon as the father arrived at the station with an identification card verifying his son's age. We wish to stress that boy was not interrogated."

 

Sarit Michaeli, a spokeswoman for the B'Tselem human right group was not convinced. "It's time that the army and police stop treating Palestinian children as though they are dangerous wanted criminals. In this case, the boy was under the minimum age of criminal responsibility, so the officers had no right to arrest him in the first place," she said.
