Border Police officer detains Palestinian for “looking in a suspicious way”, 27 July 2017
On the evening of Thursday, 27 July 2017, Nael al-Fakhuri was sitting with his neighbors outside his home, behind the segregation fence that the Israeli military built in the a-Salaimeh neighborhood of the Old City in Hebron. A Border Police officer who was standing at the nearby checkpoint, walked over. From the other side of the fence he accused al-Fakhuri of “looking in a suspicious way”. The two began arguing, and were then joined by another Border Police officer. With al-Fakhuri and the officers still on opposite sides of the fence, they ordered him to lift up his shirt and hand over his ID for inspection. Al-Fakhuri was detained for approx. 30 minutes until they returned his ID card.
