Israeli court sentences 14 yr old Palestinian child to 8 yrs

The Israeli military court in Salem has sentenced a Palestinian child from Azzun village, Qalqilia province, to eight years behind bars.

Quds Press quoted Hassan Shubaita, in charge of recording Israeli violations in Azzun, as saying that the “convicted” child Ihab Hani Mishaal is only 14 years old.

He said that the Israeli military prosecution asked for similar harsh sentences against a group of children from the same village.

He lashed out at the Israeli court, saying that the sentence against the child, who was arrested a few months ago, was in grave violation of the children’s rights.

Shubaita called for pressuring the Israeli occupation authority to end its policy of targeting children.
