A soldier was documented assaulting Nasser A-Nawaj’ah, a Betzelem employee, near the settlement of Susia. The incident took place after soldiers arrived in order to arrest two children tiling land belonging to their family. The soldiers cuffed the children with plastic handcuffs, and led them to their jeep. When Nasser A-Nawaj’ah, a Betzelem researcher, and Ahmed A-Nawaja’ah, a volunteer with Betzelem’s “Armed with Cameras” project and started documenting the incident, the soldiers came over and demanded they leave the area. The soldiers did not show the Nawaj’ahs an order declaring the place a Closed Military Area. As A-Nawaj’ah kept on filming, one of the soldiers twisted his arm and pushed him to the ground; afterwards, the soldier cuffed A-Nawaj’ah with plastic cuffs and led him to a nearby military camp.
