A protest demanding the indictment of Israeli policemen who harassed seven jailed female minors was held Monday night. The girls were originally arrested for "entering a closed military zone," as they assisted in establishing the new hilltop Jewish community of Givat Haor, north of Jerusalem.

The girls were held in jail for several weeks and were released after the courts caved in to public pressure. Soon after, the story of abuse and humiliation the girls experienced while incarcerated came out, including their being denied sleep, and stripped and searched for drugs in the presence of a male officer.
