What do you do at the Shoter checkpoint in Hebron? You check every person who enters (from H1 into H2, an area under Israeli security control). It was a really tense period and it was one of our soldiers and another soldier from 932 [battalion]. And every time someone entered, and if he’s between the ages we like – fresh, between 20 and 30 – you give them a thorough security check: you spread their legs open with a good kick and forcefully search their body, and release them. There’s nothing we can really do, you can’t hit them so your revenge is in the way you search them, and how hard you search them, with how much force. If they resist even a bit, then you pin them to the wall and do the kick and release. There were photos of them and a list of who to arrest the moment they enter.
And did someone pass through? Yes, one.
And you identify that it’s him and immediately arrest him? No, you don’t identify him, but you check the ID. After that you look at the photo and you have the name, and you identify that it’s him, reporting it on the two-way radio.
And he’s arrested? Yes.
And what’s done with him? He’s passed on. They had a much more painful security check, like a direct kick and another kick and another kick, in order to search.
