Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) —  Israeli forces arrested two Palestinian children on Friday afternoon, 16 December, from Wadi Hilweh district of Silwan. Muhammad Adan al-Karaki, 18, and Zaid Ayoub Fetiha, 15 , were arrested at 3pm on charges of stone-throwing.

Eyewitnesses report that the arrests seem to have been triggered not due to alleged stone-throwing, but by a quarrel between Palestinian residents and Israeli settlers at Silwan’s spring next to the Wadi Hilweh mosque, where settlers had gone bathing. Police responded to a phone call from one of the settlers present, and arrested the two youth on arrival. Police assaulted several people when residents attempted to block the arrests.
