Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed a school in Ras Al-Amud suburb in occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday morning and arrested an 11-year-old child.
Hebrew newspaper Ha’aretz said on its website that the IOF unit took the child from his classroom along with the school’s secretary after the child confessed after beating that the secretary hid him inside the school after throwing stones at an IOF patrol.
The paper pointed out that the incident was the fifth of its kind in 2012, recalling that the IOF soldiers detained another child in the same suburb ten days ago.
The headmaster said that he tried to convince the soldiers not to storm the school and detain the child in front of all other children but they refused.
The paper said that it recorded many similar incidents in which IOF harassment of Palestinian schoolchildren was registered in occupied Jerusalem.
