Four children from the Judean Jewish community of Bat Ayin were arrested, Monday evening, on suspicion of throwing rocks at Arab vehicles near the Kfar Etzion Junction, according to the website of the Honenu legal aid organization.
The four were waiting for transportation when soldiers in a jeep stopped and inspected their hands for dirt, telling them to report suspicious people or people throwing rocks at vehicles to the Bat-Ayin security supervisor. A few minutes after the soldiers left, a police car came and officers arrested the four. One of the children, who was less than 12 years old, was released after a short time. The others were taken to the Gush Etzion police station for interrogation. The children denied the charges.
