The officers, who were stationed at a post in the neighborhood, saw the boy throwing stones at the houses at around 3pm Monday. After being notified of the incident, another patrol team that was at the area was able to apprehend the boy following a short foot chase. The minor was taken in for questioning by security forces and his parents were called to the station.


The incident joins a string of episodes in recent weeks in which Palestinian children under the age of criminal responsibility were arrested for throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli vehicles and homes or at police forces in East Jerusalem.


In the past few days, hundreds of local police officers and Border Police officers have been acting to prevent such incidents. The teams have been deployed to friction points and near Jewish homes, where they are conducting patrols and surveillance activities.


Last week, police arrested 63 suspects, including ten children under the age of 12, and 39 additional minors. Since early July, police forces arrested 758 suspects for such offenses and filed 250 indictments.
