Israel summons father of 6-yr-old Qais for interrogation

Qais had in fact thrown a cardboard container of juice on the ground, which was mistaken by Israeli forces for a stone.

Jerusalem: Just a day after the 4-year-old Ellayan was called for interrogation by Israeli police, as terrorist, Israeli police reportedly issued a summons to a Palestinian resident of the occupied East Jerusalem village of Issawiya on Tuesday over the alleged actions of his six-year-old son – marking the second similar incident in two days.

As reported by Middle East monitor with reference to official Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa, Firas Obaid received a warrant on Tuesday asking him to come to an Israeli police station for questioning on Wednesday, after his son Qais, 6, was accused of trying to throw stones at Israeli officers patrolling in Issawiya.

Qais Firas Obaid was stopped by Israeli occupation forces yesterday after he allegedly threw a carton at them, soldiers told him to provide them with his mum’s ID card. They then issued a summons for his father, ordering him to come to the city’s interrogation center at 8 am today.

However, Firas Obaid denied the police claims, saying that Qais had in fact thrown a cardboard container of juice on the ground, which was mistaken by Israeli forces for a stone.

“The little #Palestinian child Qais Obaid threw a juice bottle on the ground which made #Israeli #occupation forces to storm his home and to summon his father for interrogation under the pretext of throwing stones.”

Earlier, Rabiaa Elayyan, another Issawiya resident, was interrogated by Israeli police after his four-year-old son Mohammad allegedly threw a stone at police officers, causing no injuries.
