Israeli occupation forces summoned the father of a six-year-old child from the city of Jerusalem for interrogation yesterday evening after accusing the child of throwing a juice carton at occupation forces.

The child, named Qais Firas Obaid from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya was stopped by Israeli occupation forces yesterday after he allegedly threw a carton at them, soldiers told him to provide them with his mum’s ID card. They then return to him home and issued a summons for his father, ordering him to come to the city’s interrogation center at 8 am today.

The case comes a day after another child, Muhammad Rabi’ Elayyan, aged just four years old, was summoned by Israeli forces for allegedly throwing stones at police vehicles.

Israel Police yesterday denied summoning Muhammad saying they had only called his father in for questioning, contrary to pictures and video images showing the child carrying the summons.

Last week, a report released by Defence for Children International-Palestine (DCIP) revealed that Israel had killed 16 Palestinian children since the start of 2019.

East Jerusalem, like the rest of internationally-recognized Palestinian territory close by in the West Bank, has been undergoing a period of tension in recent months in particular, due to the demolition of entire Palestinian neighborhoods and the occupation of homes belonging to Palestinian families by Jewish settlers.
