Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights strongly denounced the Israel military court of Ofer for issuing harsh prison sentences against Palestinian children under age 18.

The Israeli Salem military court, north of Jenin, has sentenced two Palestinian children to one year and half behind bars after charging them with throwing stones at Israeli occupation forces.

Director of the center Fuad AlKhuffash said that the children are: Waleed Nasr Shuqair, 16 years old and Khalil Ibrahim Shuqiar, 17 years old and they are from Azawieh town near Salfeet in the West Bank.

They are students in the school and were arrested on June 2012 after raiding their homes. Their trail was postponed many times.

Fouad Al-Khuffash said that these sentences did not take into account that the detainees are under age 18, and violated the international law which forbids the detention of children under this age.
