Detainee 14

B.A., 15 years old.

In 2011, B.A. was arrested for the first time. Shortly after his release he fell ill and was hospitalised. During his stay at the hospital B.A. was on the wanted list by the IDF, who went to his house to arrest him. When they did not find him, they arrested his brother instead. The soldiers offered to release his brother in exchange for B.A. as they threatened to attack the hospital. The whole ''exchange'' operation took place at 6 a.m and was filmed with the presence of medical staff. B.A. is in detention and has attended 8 court hearings already for the ''crime'' of participating in a peaceful protest against the occupation. He is not allowed any family visits.
