A Palestinian activist from Jerusalem Samia Khoury took to social media to call for the release of her grandson who was brutally attacked by Israeli Occupation Forces.

According to Khoury, in the early hours of Tuesday morning, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF), stormed her son’s house after breaking the gate at the entrance of the compound in which they all live and arrested her grandson, Shadi Khoury, 16.

“They beat him until he was bleeding all over the room and along the path on the way out of the house dragging him barefoot and blindfolded, not allowing the parents to see where the blood was coming from,” she said.

After that, Shadi was taken to an interrogation section in the police compound called “the Russian compound,” she added.

“Shadi, a child, is being “interrogated” without the presence of his parents or a lawyer, a tactic used systematically to terrorize children into submission, and ultimately using their own words to incriminate them,” Khoury continued.

“Shadi is a case among so many Palestinian children that are being harassed, tortured and imprisoned for no reason other than being a Palestinian seeking to live in dignity and freedom in their own country.”

She lastly added, “As an 89-year-old grandmother who has lived through the Nakba, the 1967 war, the first and second intifadas, I continue to ask you my friends: “Until when will this grave injustice go on?” Because you care for human rights, and the rights of children, I am asking you to take action now and contact your parliament or congress representative, to put an end to these grave injustices especially against our children as well as our whole population living under a brutal military occupation. Shadi should not be sleeping in a prison cell. He is a child and should be home with his family.”
