April 15, 2016

Two Jerusalemite children turn themselves-in to Al-Ramleh prison on Friday morning following an order by the occupation’s court after they were under house arrest for 9 months.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that the 16-year old Nour Abu Hadwan and 16-year old Seif Tawil turned themselves-in to Al-Ramleh prison after they were under house-arrest for 9 months. A hearing session was held for them at the District Court on Thursday and the judge ordered them to turn themselves-in before being sentenced in the next few days.

Abu Hadwan and Tawil are among 10 Jerusalemite children from the neighborhood of Beit Hanina north of Jerusalem that were arrested last June. After two weeks of interrogation, they were released on condition of open house-arrest. During the past months, the children were deprived from their rights to education, movement and treatment. Along with their families, they suffered from almost daily raids on their houses by the Israeli intelligence personnel to make sure they were home.

It is noteworthy that four of the children had turned themselves-in to Al-Ramleh prison last Sunday to serve their prison sentences that varied between one and three years.
