Israel releases Palestinian teenager after 4 months

Oct. 25, 2011 10:09 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 29, 2011 6:14 P.M.)
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".)
