ISA detains and interrogates B’Tselem field researcher; B’Tselem: “Disgraceful arrest aimed at hampering the work of a human rights organization”

On Saturday night, 6 August 2022, B’Tselem’s field researcher in the South Hebron Hills, Nasser Nawaj’ah, was arrested by soldiers who arrived at his home in the village of Susiya. Nawaj’ah was handcuffed, blindfolded and taken to a military camp in the settlement of Otniel. He was held there for about 12 hours, still handcuffed and blindfolded, and was given no food or water other than a few sips at the beginning. Throughout the entire time, the police, the military and the Israel Security Agency did not notify his family, B’Tselem or his lawyers of his whereabouts.

On Sunday, around midday, Nawaj’ah was taken to an ISA interrogation facility in Gush Etzion, where he was interrogated by an officer who introduced himself as “Captain Yassin.” The officer questioned Nawaj’ah about his work and home, and accused him of “causing all the trouble in the area.” The officer then asked Nawaj’ah to stop “causing trouble” and “engaging in friction” with the military.

This is not the first time the ISA has taken action against Nawaj’ah. In 2021, he was summoned for a talk with an ISA officer who presented himself as “Captain ‘Eid.” In the “warning talk,” the officer told him he was “threatening the military and sending B’Tselem activists to harass the soldiers.”

In response to his arrest, Nawaj’ah stated: “It is not surprising that Israel goes after people who document the injustices it commits in the Occupied Territories and work to expose it. The violence of the Israeli forces is nothing new – it is a daily part of my work and of life for all Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. That is why I do my job, and I will continue doing it.”

B’Tselem Executive Director Hagai El-Ad: “This case is disgraceful, but not an exception. Israel does everything it can to obstruct the work of human rights organizations, especially Palestinian ones, that expose the violations it commits. The “friction” Nawaj’ah was told to steer clear of, is created by the Israeli government that takes Palestinian land, the High Court that signs off on this, the settlers that attack Palestinians and the military that backs them. The goal of arresting and interrogating a B’Tselem employee is clear: disrupting his work and helping the military and settlers continue to trample on the rights of Palestinians in the South Hebron Hills.”
