August 12, 2015

The occupation police released on Tuesday night two brothers after detaining and interrogating them for several hours on charges of throwing stones at the light rail. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that the Israeli forces arrested the 12-year old Mutaz Mahmoud Ramadan from Sheikh Jarrah playground (only meters away from his house) and then called his 11-year old brother Mohammad for interrogation at Salah Eddin Street police station. The children’s father explained to Wadi Hilweh Information Center that his sons were interrogated from the afternoon hours until 10 p.m. and he was allowed to attend the interrogation; note that they were interrogated individually. He added that the police accused them of throwing stones at the light rail and claimed to have pictures and videos as evidence. The father asked to see the evidence but the police ignored his request and insisted to interrogate his children. He also explained that the police released his children on condition of not talking to some of their friends for two weeks.
