On Sunday, Mohammad Tamimi, 15, was thrown into the back of an unmarked car by undercover Israeli agents dressed as Arabs in the occupied village of Nabi Saleh and detained until the end of the night.

Jaclynn Ashley reports in Mondoweiss :

As Mohammad Tamimi, 15, walked to the market near his home in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh Sunday evening, he passed by a new white Hyundai.

Two men he assumed to be Palestinians were standing outside the parked car, speaking fluent Arabic on their phones. Two more were sitting inside the car, which had a green license plate (vehicles belonging to Israeli citizens have yellow plates).

Mohammad did not think much about this scene.

When he got close the men jumped Mohammed. One bent the youth’s right arm behind his back and covered his mouth. Then two men threw Mohammad into the car and drove out of the village.

Fadel Tamimi, Mohammad’s father, only learned of this when Mohammad was released later that night at around 11 p.m.
