Palestinian youth from Jerusalem imprisoned in occupation jail

The Palestine Information Centrechild-prisoners1 reported on June 20 that an Israeli military court ordered the imprisonment of a Jerusalemite child from Alezariya, to the south east of Jerusalem.

Local sources said on Thursday that the 14-year-old child Mohammed Al-Mikahal was also fined 2000 shekels for throwing firebombs at Israeli targets.

Meanwhile, Jawad Siyam, the director of Wadi Hilwa information center, charged the Israeli occupation authority with trying to recruit Jerusalemite children as informants.

Describing the attempts as a rising phenomenon, Siyam said that even families of the victims try to cover up for their sons fearing social retribution.

Siyam told the PIC that the IOA was exploiting the economic conditions to recruit the children and even the adults.
