Monday, January 29, 2024, 20:09 As of mid-afternoon today, there were 13 detentions at a protest against the “humanitarian aid” being transferred to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom Crossing. Among the detainees are a reserve soldier who was brutally detained by military police officers and handcuffed at the scene, the protest organizers, and several women, some of them married and the mothers of babies. Honenu Attorney Nati Rom arrived at the Kerem Shalom Police Station and provided legal counsel to the detainees.

The reserve soldier required medical treatment and is being transported at this time from the Military Criminal Investigation Division (MCID) offices in Be’er Sheva to the military clinic at Neve Tzedek Prison (Prison 10). The interrogators informed the soldier that he was detained and would spend the night in remand. He has not yet been interrogated and his testimony has not been heard. Honenu Attorneys Nati Rom and Ophir Steiner spoke with the soldier and are assisting him.
