Hebron CPT’s neighbour arrested for alleged stone-throwing
Sunday 19 May 2013
On Saturday evening 18 May at about 7.30 p.m. Hebron CPT’s neighbour and friend was arrested by a squad of at least ten Israeli soldiers. She was accused of throwing a stone from the roof of her apartment onto a group of settlers who were celebrating in Shuhada Street. One of the arresting soldiers said that he had personally witnessed the offence.
Our neighbour was taken to an Israeli police-station for questioning. There she was told that a female settler had also lodged a complaint against her. The settler was brought into the interrogation room, and asked to identify our neighbour as the stone-thrower – which she did.
Our neighbour was eventually released after questioning, and arrived back at her apartment at midnight. She had to attend the police-station again this morning – Sunday 19 May – at 10.00 a.m. She was held and then released without charge.
