Israeli Border Police Officer Suspended After Throwing Palestinian Girl's Bike Into Bushes

Second officer caught on camera confiscating the bicycle from the eight-year-old goes unpunished.


Border Police officer grabs girl’s bike, tosses it into bushes, Hebron, July 2016


Two Border Police officers were filmed driving a Palestinian girl who was riding a bicycle in Hebron away and then, once she fled, one of the two picked up her bike and threw it into the bushes. The officer who threw the bike was suspended on Tuesday.

The video that was released by human rights group B'tselem was filmed last week. It shows an officer running toward the girl, Anwar Burqan, on Hebron's al-Ibrahimi St., demanding she stop on the roadside. He steps on her bicycle after she lays them on the road and asks her some questions until she runs away crying.

After that, another officer arrives at the scene, picks up the bicycle she had left behind and throws them into the bushes. The officer that threw the bike was suspended. The conduct of the other officer is currently under investigation.

Large swaths of al-Ibrahimi St. are closed to Palestinian traffic. Apparently, the girl's bicycle was confiscated because she was riding in a part of the street closed to Palestinians.

Ranya, the girl's mother, told Haaretz that since the incident took place her daughter refuses to leave the house, is scared, and shouts. "It was a trauma that will stay with her for her whole life. I don't know for what reason that soldier attacked her. Even if she entered a place she wasn't allowed to enter, what danger or threat did she pose – she's only an eight-year-old girl." The mother added that she didn't expect that the officer would be punished or prosecuted.

Raed Abu Ramileh, the B'tselem cameraman that lives in a house overlooking the courtyard where the incident transpired, recalled, "I saw that soldier coming toward the girl and I decided to document it. It was very difficult to watch, especially when you hear the girl crying and wailing." Abu Ramileh said that this time he was able to film the incident from within his home but sometimes he is met by violence – both verbal and physical – at the hands of police officers and settlers in the area, when they see him with a camera.

The Border Police issued the following statement: "The Border Police views the incident with severity and is sorry for it. At the close of the initial investigation the Border Police commander ordered that the combatant be immediately removed from active duty. All investigative material was handed over to the Police Investigation Department [Justice Ministry’s department for the investigation of police officers], which began its investigation of the incident."

It has a happier ending:

One bike taken, another was bought,
Oh free world, meet the 8 years old Palestinian child Anwar Amer Burqan who was bullied two days ago by a fascist Zionist occupation soldier who stole her bike at gunpoint while she was swearing to him that the bike is her's, yet he stole the bike and chased her (in tears) away...Today I was honored to buy and give her a new yellow bike on behalf of the chairman of Colonization and Apartheid Wall Resistance Commission Mr. Walid Assaf, she was still in shock of that crime but her innocent smile was restored, 4 August 2016.








Way to go Younes!

Completely wrong.

An every day rather minor event compared to the number they kill.

Kill?

You mean defending against countless terrorist attacks?

And why are Palestinians dying?
Becuas they are being taught to believe all israel is occupied and to hate Jews by the Palestinian authorities.






The most recent wave of Palestinian terrorism that began in September 2015 – a wave of stabbings and knifings now being emulated in European cities – has a particularly grotesque feature: child terrorists.

Palestinian children who directly perpetrate acts of terrorism, including murder, violate the most fundamental of human rights: the right to life. The Palestinian adults who encourage Palestinian child terrorism violate one of the most fundamental rights of the child: the right not to take part in armed conflict or hostilities.

The Palestinian Authority has supported its claim that "Palestine" is ready for statehood, and responded to the UN General Assembly's formal recognition of "non-member observer state" status of the "State of Palestine," by formally acceding to international legal prohibitions on children in armed conflict.

In violation of those legal obligations there have been at least 36 separate terrorist attacks by Palestinian children...



The Secretary-General's report is due to be taken up by the Security Council on Tuesday, August 2, 2016.
