Randomly-chosen quotation:
"And so on we go with the Middle East tragedy, telling the world that things are getting better when they are getting worse, that democracy is flourishing when it is swamped in blood, that freedom is not without "birth pangs" when the midwife is killing the baby."
(Robert Fisk, 8 October 2006)
Mohammad Amarneh
Mohammad Amarneh, a 17 year-old student, was arbitrarily imprisoned on 2 March 2016. In the middle of night, soldiers stormed Amarneh’s family house in Yabad, Jenin gov., ransacked it, and kidnapped Mohammad. He was taken to a military jail where he was interrogated, and later sentenced to a so-called “administrative detention” by the military commander. Mohammad was accused of posting material on Facebook “that includes incitement against the occupation security forces” – an accusation he denies.

The Israeli military have singled out Yabad for harassment operations, repeatedly invading the town, storming houses, brutalizing youngsters, and otherwise menacing and kidnapping residents. Mohammad Amarneh’s arbitrary imprisonment is a means to demoralize his family, instill fear in Yabad’s residents, and to subjugate the town.

Number of days arbitrarily imprisoned:

Percentage of Mohammad Amarneh’s life arbitrarily imprisoned: 1.8%
