  • Sickening ‘waterboarding’ of Syrian refugee schoolboy sparks outrage

A 16-year-old teenager has been charged with the "racially-aggravated assault" and questioned, the British police said on Wednesday.

Jamal and his family fled their war-torn town of Homs in 2016.

Accompanied with a statement allegedly from the family's solicitor, the video shows a schoolboy, identified only as 15-year-old Jamal, walking alone before being head-butted, dragged to the floor, pinned down by his neck and water boarded by a group of boys.

The incidents are being reviewed by policing authorities and an investigation into at least one of them is ongoing. The boy is said to have moved to Huddersfield two years ago.

The 15-year-old Syrian refugee who was filmed in a playground at Almondbury community school in the United Kingdom being pushed to the ground and had water poured on his head won't return to the school.

The local council also responded, saying: "Behaviour like this will not be tolerated".

Another donor, Simon Porter, said: 'Syrian refugee children who have fled a war torn country being bullied in a United Kingdom school is unacceptable'.

West Yorkshire Police said a youth had been called to the police station on suspicion of the attack on the boy, and that it was liaising with the girl's family regarding the latest video to surface.

-Throughout the campaign I have increased the target of the funds and I will continue to do so as I feel it is important that we raise as much money as possible for the family. Locals reportedly informed police of who was responsible for the attack, whose social media accounts indicate that he was a supporter of far-right organisation Britain First.




"I was just crying and I didn't do nothing because I respect the school rules".

"She has also attempted suicide, and tried to cut her wrists, the level of bullying got so much".

In an interview with ITV News, the boy said he had been left "feeling like I couldn't study or do my homework".

"FYI, this is not Sheffield and is Almondsbury high school, Huddersfield". "Kids don't tell us because they think we will screw it up", she said, when in fact, research shows that telling a trusted adult nearly always make the situation better.

In another video, the victim's sister too is being seen pushed and mocked by a group of pupils at the school, forcing the girl to fall on the ground.

"The family had concerns about their children and the environment their children were in at school".

The video has been widely shared online, provoking outrage and prompting wellwishers to set up an online crowdfunding page for the victim which received £50,000 in donations in the space of a day.

"The incident occurred on 25 October this year and has been subject to thorough investigation since it was reported to us the day after". Understand from council that the school have taken strong action.
