Alma Shehadah’s story
In the summer of 2012, she was arrested for the first time on her way back home in Eir Tarma. She was in a taxi with a 17-year-old young man who was pulled out of the car on a checkpoint and was beaten in front of her. “He is just a child, why are you beating him?” she screamed at the First Assistant who replied by beating her and the young man. She replied by slapping him in the street and so she was taken to the air force security branch where she stayed for over a month.
