The Israeli District Court in occupied Jerusalem ordered, Wednesday, six Palestinian children from occupied Jerusalem under house arrest for one week. The court also imposed high fines on the families; two children remain imprisoned. Amjad Abu ‘Asab, head of the Jerusalemite Detainees Committee, told the SAFA news agency that the court ordered each family to pay a 500NIS fine, and a third party bail of 5000NIS.
Abu ‘Asab identified the children as Ashraf Hani Gheith, 14, Mohammad Younis Abdul-Razeq, 14, Mohammad Khaled Abdul-Razeq, 12, Mo’taz Sheiki, 13, Marwan ‘Alwat, 14, and Mohammad Talhami, 15.
Following the abduction of the children, the police interrogated them for several hours without any legal representation, and alleged they threw Molotov cocktails and stones at an illegal settlement outpost.
The children were released, and were again called for interrogation on Wednesday.
