The Ad-Dameer, Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, issued a press release denouncing the Palestinian Security Forces for arresting and attacking, a Palestinian youth, on Sunday, for participating in a nonviolent protest denouncing Palestinian-Israeli talks in Amman.


The protest was held in the central West Bank city of Ramallah; the security forces dispersed the nonviolent protesters, and chased some of them, including Said Al-Edreesy, 22, who was grabbed by a number of security personnel, and was repeatedly beaten by one of them before being thrown into a security vehicle that took him to a security base in the city.

While driving towards the security base, several members of the security forces kept beating and punching him; the youth was held 2 hours before he was released.

Ad-Dameer reported that what the security personnel did violates the basic Palestinian law, adding that the right to peaceful gathering and the freedoms of speech and expression are guaranteed by the law.

It added that this violation targets the dignity of the residents and their personal freedom.

Ad-Dameer further called for holding an official investigation into the attack, and for holding the assailants accountable for their actions.

The attack took place as a youth movement, Palestinians for Dignity, held a protest in front of the Palestinian Security Headquarter, in Ramallah.

The protesters wanted to express their opinion that rejects the Jordanian sponsored talks between chief Palestinian Negotiator, Dr. Saeb Erekat, and Israeli negotiator Yitzhak Molcho.
