DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:00 P.M)- Today Israel’s military court (Ofer) sentenced a 13 year old Palestinian girl to 45 days imprisonment and a 3,000 shekel fine.
After arresting thirteen year old, Razan Abu Sal, earlier this month, Israel’s military court system has delivered a sentence which will see the 45 day imprisonment of the worlds youngest female child prisoner.
Palestinians in the occupied territories are subjected to a different court system to that of Israeli citizens, in which Palestinians are found guilty and convicted of crimes 99.74% of the time, frequently for things they did not do or that in the eyes of any other legal system would not be condemned as an offense.
This case, involving Razan Abu Sal, has received little to no attention by leading and popular media outlets, despite the statistical fact that this Palestinian girl is the single youngest female child prisoner on the planet.
