JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court on Sunday sentenced the teenage son of a Palestinian lawmaker to 22 months in prison.

Mohammad Atwun, 15, the son of Jerusalem lawmaker Ahmad Atwun, was sentenced to 22 months, with a suspended sentence of 12 months, a 2,000-shekel bail, and was ordered to pay 7,000 shekels in damages to settlers.

Atwun was arrested on Dec. 2, 2013 and was charged with throwing rocks at settler cars, and causing the severe injury of an Israeli child.

Ahmad Atwun spent over two years in administrative detention in Israeli jails, and has had his Jerusalem ID withdrawn after participating in Palestinian legislative council elections.
