Israel 'detains Egyptian children' in Beersheba

12:00 Jul 18 2011 Beersheba

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma‘an) 18 July -- An Israeli court has ordered the detention of three Egyptian children no older than 14 in Beersheba prison after they allegedly crossed into Israel illegally, an attorney said Sunday. Lawyer Asmahan Abed Al-Hadi's request to free one of the children was turned down, she said. The children were detained near the border with Egypt, Al-Hadi explained. She said Israel enforces a 1954 law in such matters involving infiltrators from "enemy states", but has not amended the law after the peace agreement with Egypt in 1978. On the other hand, when the Egyptians seize Israeli infiltrators on the Egyptian side near the border, they usually just send them back to the Israeli side, Al-Hadi added.
