A 16-year-old boy who was arrested within the context of the investigation into the murder of Palestinian Arab woman Aisha Rabi and was released, related a trick played by police to extract information about his alleged involvement in stone-throwing incidents.
The minor, who lives in the north of the country and is studying at the “Pri Ha’aretz” yeshiva in Rehelim, is a member of a Whatsapp group for coordinating car rides. On the day of the arrest, an adult male joined the group and offered the minor a ride.
At one point, when the vehicle drove along the Jordan Valley road, a vehicle with a PA license plate appeared at the same time and started a fight with the occupants of the car, leading to them all being arrested.
For 24 hours, the minor thought he had been arrested for throwing stones, and the undercover agents who appeared to have been arrested along with him tried to create a sense of camaraderie with him. It was only later that the boy realized it was all a trick to get information out of him about the stone throwing attack.
