The Israeli occupation government (IOG) has imposed 900,000 dollars in fines on Jerusalemite children in Silwan for throwing stones at Israelis vehicles and illegal Israeli settlers over the past ten months.

Fakhri Abu Diab, a member of the committee for the defense of Silwan real-estate, said in a press release on Wednesday that the Israeli courts blackmail the Silwan inhabitants by imposing heavy fines on their children, because they know the families would be forced to pay the fines to secure the release of their children.

He said that many Jerusalemites go in debt to secure the money while others could not and their sons remain in jail.

Abu Diab said that large sums of money go to bail out the detained children and are liable to be lost in the event the court conditions were not met.
