JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A 14-year-old Jerusalem boy was banned from his neighborhood by a district court, his family said Wednesday.

The child is prohibited from entering his home district for 60 days, after being convicted of stone throwing, relatives said.

Salim Bader Ash-Sha'ar will have to live with relatives and stop attending school for the duration of the order. His father was ordered to pay a 750 shekel ($212) fine for his release, according to the Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights.

Ash-Sha'ar was detained Sunday by Israeli police in the Old City.

The order, the center said, was handed down in lieu of jail time for the child.

In the USA if you throw a rock at a person, it can be asssault with a deadly weapon, if the assault was against police thats a one year prison sentance minimum.
If this person was 55 would this be a problem? obviously not, therefore if you are old enough to throw the rock then you are old enough to be punished to the max

Does Israel really think that cruelty to children will help their country? Of course we know the war on Palestinian children Israel wages. Perhaps they are afraid that these children will rise up and take back what is rightfully theirs. Israel is a frightened country, everyday it lives this way (imagined fear). They can't for one second allow justice for it will surely take away everything they have gained through the illegal establishment of their country, to the occupation and $$$ they make

Israel would never do this to a Jewish family. That's apartheid for you.

Izzy: that cruel settler who kidnapped a 15-year-old, killed his pet goat, stripped him naked and basically tortured him got barely over one year. And he's the exception to the rule -- most Israelis who assault Palestinians don't even suffer the inconvenience of a questioning by the Israeli police. You tell me which state would punish a child by separating him from his family and home for months. Suppose this kid has no family outside of his neighborhood? He's supposed to live homeless?
