The Magistrate court judge added six months to the prison sentence of the 17-year old Mohammad Al-A’war from Silwan. Mohammad Mahmoud, Al-Dameer organization lawyer, said that the Magistrate judge sentenced the child Shidad Al-A’war for six additional months; note that he is serving a 13-month sentence and he was supposed to be released at the beginning of next month. It is noteworthy that Shidad has been arrested since 05/05/2013 and was sentenced for 13 months of actual imprisonment last March. Shidad was arrested six times and had spent various periods in the Israeli prisons which prevented him from continuing his school education; note that the first arrest was when he was 13 years old and house arrest was imposed on him several times.
