Israel releases Palestinian teenager after 4 months

Correction appended

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities released on Tuesday Omar Jaradat, 17, from Saeer village north of Hebron after four months in the Israeli prison Ofer. He also paid a 5,000-shekel fine.

Israeli forces tried to forbid people who were waiting for the child near the checkpoint from welcoming him and tried to remove Palestinian flags that were on cars near the checkpoint.

The released prisoner spoke of harsh conditions inside the jails. He said that as winter approaches, there are few clothes for the prisoners and the authorities prevent families from providing them.

(In a previous version of this report, Ma'an misstated Jaradat's age as 11. He is 17, according to Palestinian prisoners society records. They also show he was jailed for four months, not five. An updated headline reflects both corrections. It originally read: "Israel releases Palestinian child after 5 months".)

Mira
The juvenile delinquent was held for five months, not 5 years, read the story again

Sylvia
Do you really call a Juvenile delinquent just a child, he should have been home playing instead of getting himself into trouble

Childrens' whatever
The child was put in jail because he did something bad, which the story failed to indicate

And at the same time Tietal who murdered two policemen and 2 Palestinians in what even Israelis admit were terrorist attacks has still not been tried fr his crimes. But then again he is Jewish so no real surprise there then

Ish kabbible How can you possibly say that a democratic country can fairly jailed a kid for 5 months No matter what he did he's 11 for God's sake If he did something wrong he should be locked in a juvenile educative place not a jail! It's a really sad world!

The comments here are so gullible (one person can't even do month, claiming that he was put away when he was 6, when in reality, the article says only 5 months).

More like 17 years old... Not 11... A bit of research guys.

Ofer prison is an adult jail holding, among others, dangerous people. Politics aside, a child, whatever his crime, should NEVER be held in such a place. It's not about "democracy", it's common sense and plain wrong. As a citizen here, I can't say I'm all for children running free and throwing rocks and molotov cocktails around, but if detained and tried, it should be in a proper minor's facility according to international standards.
