Translation: Bracha Ben-Avraham

The hearings began at 09:30.

Attorney Aabed defended two detaineesinfo-icon and rushed off to somewhere else.

There were 10 suspects, 3 of whom were barred from meeting with an attorney.

Evidently, the army's nighttime incursion this week took place in the village of Assira a-Shamaliya - a small village [near Nablus] - a few suspects.

Attorney Aabed appeared first, defended two of the suspects, and hurried off.  Since I arrived late, I did not meet him and have no details about the first two detainees.

Attorney Ra'ed Mahamid defended all of the other eight [detainees]. It appears that he has run out of arguments, and for each he claims:  "I repeat the same questions," because "as there is nothing more I can ask."  This was accepted with understanding by the judge, Major Itai Regev, and certainly by the interrogator, Sergeant Major Hashem Halabi.  An everyday banality that has difficult repercussions only for the detainees and their families. 

All the hearings ended at 11:20.
