Israel releases 15-year-old Palestinian girl after a day in custody

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli military court at the Ofer detention center in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah decided on Sunday to release a 15-year-old Palestinian girl after a day in custody, according to a lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

Lawyer Munthir Abu Ahmad told Ma'an that Israeli authorities released Shahd Muhammad Abu Quek, a resident of the Ramallah-area Qalandiya refugee camp, after her family signed as third-party custodian.

Abu Quek was detained on Saturday at the Qalandiya military checkpoint between Ramallah and occupied East Jerusalem. It remained unclear why the teenager was detained.

Of the 6,128 Palestinians being held in Israeli prisons and detention centers, 320 are minors and 62 are female, according to prisoners rights group Addameer.
