The persecution of a Palestinian student | The Electronic Intifada

Mays Abu Ghosh was revising for a college exam during August 2019 when Israeli soldiers broke into her home late at night. Accompanied by dogs, the troops told her father to wake up the family and gather everyone in one place. Then they entered Mays’ room and ordered her to switch on her mobile phone and computer. She refused to do so. After she disobeyed the order, Mays had to get dressed in the presence of some female soldiers. Her bedroom and that of her parents were then ransacked by the troops. Handcuffed, Mays was brought from her family’s home in Qalandiya refugee camp to the military checkpoint also in Qalandiya – an area separating occupied East Jerusalem from the remainder of the West Bank. From there she was transported to the Russian Compound, an Israeli detention center in Jerusalem. Mays was held in that center for more than a month, during which time she was repeatedly tortured.
