Sunday, November 20, 2022, 9:46 Approximately two weeks ago, a Jewish youth who prayed at the Chain Gate, one of the gates to the Temple Mount, in the Old City of Jerusalem was brutally detained by a police officer who thought that he was not being filmed (see video clip below). The detainee required medical treatment. Honenu Attorney Eladi Weisel wrote a letter – see summary after the video clip – to the Police Investigation Unit (PIU) demanding an immediate investigation of the police officer.

Honenu Attorney Eladi Weisel: “This shocking attack is the kind of incident that occurs under dark regimes. It is out of place under the rule of law. An officer in the Israel Police must not be able to use a police facility to conceal the use of illegal force on a detainee. How can it be that a policeman has no fear of doing something like this in front of his colleagues? We demand that the police suspend the violent policeman, thoroughly investigate the incident, and eradicate this evil from their midst. This is not the first time that police brutality under the protection of police station walls has become known to us. We will not accept this contemptible conduct.”
