Fawzi J.'s Arrest

Fawzi J., 16, from the southern West Bank city Hebron was subjected to Israeli military arrest on December 7, 2017, amid a widespread crackdown on protesters after U.S. President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. During the course of his detention, Israeli forces repeatedly assaulted him, both physically and verbally. DCIP lawyers represented him and worked to get Fawzi medical treatment for an injury sustained during detention.
