QALQILIA, (PIC)– The Houtari family appealed to international organizations concerned with children’s rights to intervene and demand the release of two of its children held in Israeli occupation jails.
The mother of Ali and Mahmoud Al-Houtari, from Qalqilia, said that Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested her sons last June while preparing for final school exams without giving reasons for the arrest.
She said that Ali, 18, and Mahmoud, 16, were held for one week at an interrogation center before they were transferred to Megiddo jail awaiting their trial on charges of throwing Molotov cocktails and stones at IOF soldiers.
The Israeli occupation authorities retain more than 200 Palestinian minors in custody and pass severe sentences against some of them in violation of international treaties and conventions.
