Israeli occupation forces arrested on Monday Mohammed Ali, only eight years old, at the Qalandiya checkpoint, south of Ramallah.

The Israeli soldiers claimed that the child was throwing stones at them. The child’s uncle denied the charges, insisting that Mohammed did not throw any stones and stressing that he was arrested near the checkpoint where there were no confrontations.

Occupation forces have also summoned the child’s father for further investigation. As of right now, nobody has been able to confirm the father and son’s fate.
