Police pepper spray a protester against Shabak torture in Jerusalem on Dec. 20, 2015.

Thousands are demonstrating near the Chords Bridge at the entrance to Jerusalem, in protest of the unwarranted incognito incarceration and torture of Jewish youths and minors by the Shabak. The protesters are blocking the entrance to the city.

Police arrested six demonstrators and a policeman attacked Makor Rishon news photographer Miri Tzahi, pushing her camera into her face. She was taken to Terem medical center. Her face was covered in blood, according to a TPS report.

An account that made it to Facebook on Sunday revealed that one of the minors being allegedly tortured by the Shabak tried to commit suicide by slashing his wrists. The same minor has reportedly begged the remanding judge throughout his time in Shabak’s hands: “They’re turning my arms into a bow and they hold me upside down until my hands start to burn. Each day it gets worse. Give me poison. I can’t take it any more.”

The minor showed the marks of his suicide attempt to the court on Sunday. He was examined by the district psychiatrist who determined that the minor is under emotional pressure as a result of his interrogation. It was also revealed to the court that the same minor was given pills by the prison doctor because he couldn’t fall asleep as a result of the interrogations and the torture.

The minor told the judge: “I am ready to confess to everything, but I can’t explain how. Just leave me alone, damn it.”

The boy requested medical treatment for his back for the stretching and torture he endured. He burst into tears and said, “I can’t take it any more.”

Attorney Adi Keidar from the legal aid society Honenu who represents this minor said in a statement, “Today we presented to the court the hands of the minor where it can be seen clearly that a suicide attempt had been committed, all of it as a result of the torture he is undergoing in the Shabak interrogations.”

“By the end of the day we have been exposed to the continuation of the terrible saga in which we saw clearly today that everything the suspect has been telling us he already told before the court while being prevented from seeing us. He described all those shocking things and no one responded. This is a shocking event that must worry us, the fact that the court system link arms with the prosecution, the police and Shabak.”

The Honenu organization said in a statement on Sunday: The things that were revealed in this case are shocking and terrifying. The responsible elements have crossed all the lines and decided to spill the blood of Jewish children, plain and simple. This is a spiritual eclipse experienced by the State of Israel.”

The Shabak released a statement saying the report was made up and baseless.

  1. People need to get out en masse. Show the government how many committed Jews will not stand by quietly for the prolonged detention and TORTURE of religious youth without trial. The real threat to Israel's democracy comes from actions like this one of Shabak. Show the government that this is not a productive avenue to pursue, but will BRING THEM DOWN if they continue.

  2. Israel isn't a Democracy. It's a democratically elected dictatorship. Read Jewish Statesmanship: Lest Israel Fall, by Professor Paul Eidelberg, politcal science professor.
    The worst problem Israel has, and there are many because it has the worst political system in the western world, is that its Prime Ministers, media, academia, & the controlling Leftist view in that country refuse to adjust their suicidal thinking regarding the overwhelmingly genocidal so-called Palestinians.
    If they would have repatriated them back to Jordan and Egypt, hundreds of thousands of innocent people wouldn't have been so harmed. Many have been murdered, injured, & dispossessed because of them. And, Israelis have lost hundreds of billions in national treasure.
    Israel's governments don't truly fight the overwhelmingly genocidal so-called Palestinians, they fight FOR them.
    Every once in awhile, some people, after watching for so long while so many innocent people are attacked with impunity, snap.
    That's when you see Israel's government get really serious. It can't abide anyone actually caring enough to do something about rampant murder & injury.
    The country has to wake up to the fact that their political system has NEVER represented them. Their leaders have been cowards.
    They've had a way out of all of this terrorism, this Jihad, but refuse to even consider it.
    It's the legal and moral repatriation of the savage barbarian population of so-called Palestinians back to Jordan & Egypt.

  3. Marleen Baels You ran away from Israel from an area that suffered from arab terrorism so you know what terrorism is all about. All terrorists, whatever their religion need to be brought to justice. Hope you’re having a good time in the antiSemmitis Country you’ve chosen to live in. Do your neighbours know you’re Jewish? Anyway, stay there. Israel is better off withopuit the like of people like you in Her midst.

  4. More people needed to protest and protest at the right places the right way. Bullies like the ones who hold and turture the kids won't back up unless they are forced to do so.
    I can't believe they don't even care about the image they send about themselves all around the world. One got to wonder who is Israel's worst enemy.

  5. Its just wrong to make statements for which you have no Facts. This is a big problem today. Truth must be brought to light. no more propaganda or what 'think' might be true or not. The chant of a MOB is not always based on fact. Make SURE it is.

  6. Shabak's investigation was sent off in the wrong direction by the Arab witness who claimed to see Jews running away from the fire bombing.
    (1) Look at the lettering of the spray painting: no Jew underlines two letters with a single vowel.
    (2) No Jewish teenagers would venter into an Arab naborhood at night. Even undercover armed military units have a rescue force standing by nearby.
    (3) The house was serounded by a complecated network of fences. Only omeone who abserved the fence network durring daylight would know how to get in.
    (4) Arabs were attacking Jewish cars in the same neaborhood with firebombs the same day.
