The state with the short shelf-life

"According to a testimony given to B'Tselem by Ahmad Abu ‘Alia, a 21-year-old resident of al-Mughayir and a student at a-Najah University, on Wednesday, 25 November 2009, while he was waiting near the Za’tara checkpoint for a transportation to the university, soldiers came over to him and requested his identity card. After checking it, one of the soldiers took his school books and papers and threw them to the ground. The soldiers then pushed him hard, knocking him to the ground, cuffed his hands behind his back, and blindfolded him with a piece of cloth." (thanks Olivia)
