An Israeli court extended Muhammad Haj Yahya’s house arrest considering soot, found on his hands, as a proof of throwing stones
Occupied Palestine (QNN)- An Israeli court extended the house arrest of Muhammad Haj Yahya (14 years old) for extra ten days, considering soot on his hands as proof that he took part in protests and threw stones at Israeli occupation forces.
the Israeli prosecution filed a lawsuit before the Israeli Central Court in ‘Petah Tikva’ on Monday, claiming that the boy was throwing stones and taking part in protests in the 1948-occupied territories.
Sanaa, Muhammad’s mother, said that the Israelis claimed that finding soot on her son’s hands is proof that he threw stones. However, she stressed that the reason why Muhammad’s hands were covered with soot was that he fell on the ground while he was running away from Israeli soldiers, who opened fire at Muhammad and his friends while they were playing.
Israeli cops arrested Muhammad wounding his leg with a rubber-coated metal bullet and took him to an unknown place before they started beating him up.
Sanaa sais that a doctor, who treated Muhammad’s leg, advised her to take him for a psychiatrist but the Israeli police prevented them.
