Hebron, ALRAY -  An Israeli military court has issued Sunday tough sentences against two brothers from Halhoul, north of al-Khalil, for allegedly stone-throwing.

 Ofer military court sentenced the two brothers Iyad and Hassan Bajes Albou for 12 and 20 years on charges of throwing stones at a settler's car.

 Iyad Albou, a father of 4 children, was detained on October 2011, while Hassan, 32, was arrested a few days after his brother's arrest.

Their family said that they did not expect the court's harsh sentence, calling on international human rights organizations to appeal against the oppressive judgment of the court.

 Media spokesman for Palestinian Prisoners Center, the researcher Riad alAshqar condemned  the court verdict and consider it as an retaliatory and deterrent action.
