A 14.5-year-old minor was arrested at the entrance to the Cave of the Patriarchs for being in possession of a knife. The minor was sentenced to 36 days in prison, three months probation for 3 years and a fine of NIS 500. It turns out that having a knife is considered to be a "sport" among adolescents in the region. The punishment was imposed on the minor even though he had no intention to hurt or cause damage and had no prior offenses.

Despite difficulties in actually proving the allegations, a minor was accused and convicted of throwing bottles containing colors and Molotov Cocktails at a moving car. In a plea bargain, the boy was sentenced to 14 months in prison, a 10- month suspended sentence and a fine of NIS 2000 or another two months in prison. The judge accepted the plea bargain, but emphasized that the difficulties  in the evidence related to the reliability of the investigators' conduct during the interrogations, which was found to be extremely troubling!

A 14.5-year-old minor arrested for throwing stones and questioned all night without an attorney being present, in violation of the law, and despite the fact that the boy's attorney called early enough and requested to be present. Only one of the investigators was authorized to investigate minors. The minor's attorney is trying to obtain a small trial (trial-within-a trial) to cancel the boy's confession, which was obtained illegally.
