An Israeli court sentenced seven Palestinian children to lengthy jail sentences on Thursday, for throwing stones.
The boys, aged between 14 and 17, were given sentences ranging from one to three years for throwing stones at Israeli cars, said Palestinian prisoner rights group Addameer in a statement posted on Facebook.
According to Addameer, at least 406 Palestinian children are in Israeli prisons, with a quarter of them aged under 16, and that most of the 700 children prosecuted annually are charged with stone-throwing.
Palestinian news agency Maan reported that the boys were originally arrested in June 2015.
