Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) --

Israeli forces arrested two young teens and detained a third on Thursday, 3 November in the district Al-Ein, Silwan. Hamza Jawad Jaber, 14, was accused of throwing stones at Israeli forces. Muhammad Mahmoud Shwayat, 17, was arrested the same day. Jaber’s 13-year old brother Fareed was also detained and taken for interrogation.

Fareed’s father, present at the interrogation as his guardian, was assaulted by investigators and forced to leave the room. Investigators accused Fareed father of attempting to speak with his son. The father later told Silwanic that “the interrogators’ merely wanted to be alone with my son, to exert pressure on him more easily.”
This is a common occurrence in interrogation of Palestinian minors, wherein parents or guardians are ejected from the investigation room by officers, who claim that the guardian is disrupting investigation.
Shwayat appeared in court the same day, and was sentenced to house arrest outside Silwan in Shuafat Camp. He is not permitted to return to Silwan until the sentence is over.
