Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked met on Monday with the families of the minors detained by the Shin Bet on suspicion of involvement the murder of an Arab woman in October.
Representatives of the families said that Minister Shaked heard at length their claims against the detention conditions of their children.
The Shin Bet claimed that the investigations are being conducted in accordance with the law to prevent terrorism. “The claim that the suspects were ‘kidnapped’ is baseless. The suspects were arrested under arrest warrants issued before the arrest by a judge and immediately after their arrest, their families were informed.”
According to the Shin Bet’s statement, during their detention, interrogees were provided with all of their religious needs, including prayer items and clothing, and the option to pray on Shabbos.
“The interrogees receive kosher food, and there were no complaints about their quality or quantity of food.”
