September 10, 2015

The occupation police released the 17-year old Khalil Raed Abu Tayeh on condition of isolation from the Old City of Jerusalem for one week. The child explained to Wadi Hilweh Information Center that a settler attacked him while walking in Al-Wad Street in the Old City of Jerusalem and within a few moments he was surrounded and arrested by the occupation forces under the pretext of “assaulting a settler”. Abu Tayeh added that the settler attacked him and hit him directly on his eye and he tried to defend himself but the forces arrested and assaulted him. The Center’s lawyer explained that the police accused the child of assaulting a settler and released him on condition of isolation from the Old City of Jerusalem while allowing him to go to school if accompanied by one of his parents for one week in addition to the need of attending an interrogation next week. The lawyer added that the interrogator tried to completely isolate him from the Old City of Jerusalem for one week and prevent him from going to school but he refused that especially that Abu Tayeh is a student in a secondary school and any absence from school will negatively affect him.
