An Israeli court imposed on Friday house arrest on two children from al-Issawiya village in the center of occupied Jerusalem.
Human rights sources said that the Israeli court imposed house arrest on Mohammed Mustafa, 16, and Khaled Abu Ghoush, 17, in addition to imposing a bail as a condition for their release.
House arrest is a punishment by the Israeli occupation authorities against Palestinian children locking them into their houses until the court’s verdict is issued. The days spent under house arrest are not counted in any sentence passed later by the court. Such punishments deny children their rights to study and play and cause them psychological and behavioral complications.
