Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - The Israeli Magistrate court in Jerusalem extended Sunday the arrest of three minor prisoners from al-Isawiyya town to the next Thursday.
The occupation police released two Palestinian youths and exiled them out of al-Alqsa Mosque.
Lawyer from Addameer organization, Mohammed Mahmoud, said the judge of the court extended the detention of Lu’ai Sarandah, Wael Sabta and Mohammed Dary to the next Thursday. Sarandah and Sabta were arrested last Sunday at dawn from their houses in al-Isawiyya town.
In a relevant vein, the occupation police released both Tareq al-Zarba and Abboud Abu Sbaih with a fine of NIS 1000 each. The police put them under house arrest for 10 days and exiled them out of al-Aqsa Mosque for three months. Both were subjected to harsh interrogation in al-Maskoupia interrogation centre.
The police released salah al-A’war, 18, after serving a 20-day sentence. A’war was arrested on May 2013 and sentenced for 13 months last March. He was arrested six times before and served various periods in Israeli prisons that prevented him from continuing his study.
Despite international and Israeli law, occupation forces continue to arrest children. Approximately 700 Palestinian children under the age of 18 from the West Bank are prosecuted every year through Israeli military courts.
The most common charge against children is throwing stones, which under military law is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Currently 210 Palestinian children are held in Israeli prisons.
