Israeli forces 'interrogate Jerusalem children'

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces interrogated two Palestinian children in Jerusalem on Thursday, their father said.

Iyad al-Awar told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided his home and tried to detain his children, 6-year-old Qassam and 5-year-old Nasrallah.

Al-Awar prevented the arrest but troops handed him a warrant ordering him to bring his children to the Russian Compound in Jerusalem.

"We arrived to the Russian Compound and the troops wanted to take my kids for investigations, I refused and they beat me in the ear and the leg. My kids started crying and were so scared from the troops. They took my kids by force," al-Awar said.

Intelligence officers questioned the children about their detained cousin Shadad, and asked if they had seen him throwing stones or Molotov cocktails at Israeli forces, the father said.

"We were released the same night, but my cell phone was confiscated," he added.
