12:00 May 18 2013 East Jerusalem

RAMALLAH, May 18, 2013 (WAFA) – A total of 27 minors from East Jerusalem are under house arrest, the Ministry of Prisoners said Saturday.

It said Israel has recently intensified using this punishment against young Palestinians from the occupied city who it claims were involved in anti-occupation activities, including throwing rocks at police and participating in protests.

The ministry said the minors - the youngest is 14 years and the oldest 19 - have to stay home all the time and are not allowed to even go to school.

If a minor leaves his home for any reason, his family will be punished and forced to pay a fine, said the ministry.
