Israel’s Salem military court, on Tuesday, sentenced Palestinian child Abdul-Jaber Yasin, age 15, to four months in jail, and ordered him to pay a 3,000 NIS fine.
Yasin’s family said that the Israeli court accused their child of throwing stones at Israeli soldiers during a raid on Asira al-Qibliya village, to the south of Nablus.
Israeli forces abducted Yasin on 3 May, after violently beating him during confrontations in Asira al-Qibliya, Days of Palestine reports.
