Tariq Abukhdeir and his family met with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in west bank.
BRADENTON, FL (WFLA) -
When Isa Jones was watching a video of Israeli police beating someone, he never thought it would be one of the boys who he coaches.
“It's really kind of unbelievable, shocking. I know it’s going to be shocking to a lot of these kids that this can actually happen,” said Jones.
Jones is 15-year-old Tariq Abukhdeir’s basketball coach at University Academy of Florida in Tampa. Abukhdeir was arrested while in Israel Thursday and his family claims video shows Abukhdeir being beaten by Israeli police. Abukhdeir was near a protest for his cousin’s murder when he was arrested.
