The soldiers returned from the refugee camp with Ahmen, who works at a Falafel stand and led towards the checkpoint while he was eating. For years, ever since his father was killed by IDF soldiers, he had been working to provide for his mother and young brothers. When people asked the soldiers why they were taking Ahmed they replied "He'll be back today after being interrogated". But he wasn't. On Thursday that followed his arrest the lawyer that his mother had hired found out that Ahmed was being held at Ofer (a detainee's camp) and was accused of throwing stones and molotov bottles.
