According to residents and observers in the city of Hebron, the treatment of Palestinians by IDF soldiers has deteriorated since the Golani brigade took control of the area in December. According to residents and observers, this deterioration includes prolonged and spiteful delays at military barriers that connect the part of the city where Jewish settlers live and the other parts of Hebron (H1), insistence on searching children’s school bags, bothering children returning from school, beating people, and detaining activists.

The Palestinians were detained and they say they were also beaten on the way to the police station.

A number of decisions taken recently in the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court, and correspondence between the court administration, the police and the Minister of Justice, show that the police is in the habit of holding detainees for the night, although they can be released on bail at the police station. This occurs due to the lack of an orderly mechanism for police to collect bail money.
