On 26 July 2016, a 9-year-old boy is detained without explanation by Israeli soldiers near the Wall. He is released 10 hours later. "I was playing with my friends in an area near the Wall at around 4:00 p.m. when an Israeli patrol suddenly appeared. Two soldiers opened a gate in the Wall and started to chase us. We were scared and started to run but the soldiers ran faster and managed to catch up with us. They also fired stun grenades in our direction. When they caught one of my friends I stopped running and they caught me. They did not tell me why they were detaining me."
