Israeli police arrested, on Tuesday afternoon, 12-year-old Muzeed Mohammad Abbasi after chasing a group of children as they were walking home from school, near the Old City of Jerusalem.The Wadi Hilweh Information Center was recently informed that Israeli police chased a group of youngsters while they were walking in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amoud, in the Silwan district of occupied East Jerusalem, in the direction of Ein Al-Lozeh.

Forces took Mr. Abbasi to Salah Eddin Street Police Station to interrogate him on charges of throwing stones.

The boy’s family stated that the interrogation lasted six hours, with his father in attendance. Muzeed was then released on condition of house arrest for five days.

The youth apparently fell to the ground, while being chased, leading to bruises in his hand and several wounds in his body.

An ambulance team was summoned to check him during the interrogation, and Muzeed was taken to the hospital upon release; check-ups showed that he only suffered bruises.
