The boy? Yes. I remember there were slaps, nothing serious, really violent. I didn’t understand why he was doing it. And then, after detaining him for a while, they sent him home and confiscated his horse on the grounds that the SPCA should be called. It was very hard for me to see. I couldn’t understand what gives the IDF the authority to make such decisions, to decide whether to take the boy’s livelihood or his father’s livelihood, to get involved. Your mission is not to save the animal world, it’s to prevent terrorism and dangerous things. Taking a little boy and pestering him for no reason – not for no reason, the horse was in bad shape – but it didn’t seem justified at all. I remember that I had a really hard time with it.
Do you have any idea what happened to the horse afterwards? No.
Did he remain at the checkpoint? Yes. I remember that he stayed there.
