A 13-year-old Palestinian boy has been placed under five-month house arrest on suspicion of throwing stones at Israeli soldiers in the West Bank. The teenager, named Karem, was detained in the city of Hebron in late September and spent six days in the Ofer Prison, an Israeli website quoted in Press TV reported. The boy has been sentenced to house arrest in his uncle’s home and is not allowed to go to school.
Karem’s grandfather noted: ‘If they decide that he violated the house arrest conditions, he may go to jail together with his uncle who signed the bail, and we don’t want to take the risk.’
The grandmother also highlighted that Karem’s health reflects his mental state, affected by his days in jail.
