Silwan teenager re-arrested

Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Israeli forces re-arrest Silwan resident Musab Shyoukhi, 18, while he was already serving a house arrest sentence. Shyoukhi was taken by police from his home, on the charge of breaking the terms of his house arrest.

The accusation was based on photos allegedly taken by an Elad-associated settler of Shyoukhi working on his family’s agricultural fields outside his home, which were then turned over to police. Although photos exist of the settler in question in fact hurling stones at Palestinians, international solidarity activists and journalists, he has never been investigated by police. This bears a stark contrast to Palestinian children of Silwan and other regions, who are frequently arrested on flimsy charges of throwing stones, with little or no supporting evidence.
