Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — The young nephew of the martyred Silwan resident Samer Sarhan was sentenced on 4 August to one year and one day in jail. Samah Sarhan, 19, was convicted of alleged involvement in demonstrations in Silwan against Israeli oppression.
A secondary court session will be held to discuss Sarhan’s supposed intention to “avenge the death” of his uncle, as stated in the indictment.

Samah’s relatives have stated that they were told by police that these files are confidential, an decision they branded “unfair”, deeming Samah’s trial part of Israel’s collective punishment of Silwan’s people.
