Were there engagements? Did you catch people, detain people, or vehicles driving during a curfew?Yes, yes, quite a few. We argued with him, chased him with an armored vehicle because we saw him driving during a curfew. We would detain him, we had many such chases, we would stop before them and detain them. Take their keys, like we used to do then, in the beginning of my service, take their keys, tell him, "Go home. Do you understand?" And we wouldn't confiscate the car, we would leave it there, in the middle of Ramallah, doesn't matter where, and say, "Go, we are taking your keys". And in general, if an officer at that patrol remembered that the same vehicle had done it before then he would make them stand in a row and I don't know what.
What?Make them stand in a row, I'm telling you. There was no physical violence. All the times I was there, no. I remember that in those cases they didn't hit them with the stocks and so on. I hear stories. Let's put it this way, mainly that. I didn't come across such things, but they would make them stand in a row, yell at them. In one case somebody treated them, Arabs, Palestinians, like soldiers in formation, "you are behind schedule" stuff like that. "It's the last time you . . ." You know.
What do you mean, formation?He put them like in an open square formation?Not a square, a line-up. Saying, "You don't give a fuck about me", the way sergeants speak, "You this, you that". And they are clueless about what he's talking about, they don't get it. This is what they did to them.
