The Israeli Central Court in Occupied Jerusalem at noontime Wednesday sentenced the 17-year-old Palestinian minor Akram Tawfiq Ibrahim Abu Sarhan to nine years in prison and a fine of 10,000 shekels.

Palestinian child Abu Sarhan, a native of Jabal Al-Mukbir town, in Occupied Jerusalem, was kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces on January 9, 2016. An Israeli court convicted him of knife-wielding and of attempting to carry out an anti-occupation stabbing attack.

Minor Abu Sarhan has been subjected to several inter-prison transfers and is currently locked up in the Megiddo jail.
