The Israeli government has made amendments to its civil laws that would impose a three years minimum prison sentence on stone throwers offenders(who throw rocks at Israeli troops, civilians or vehicles) with an additional punishment on the parents of such imprisoned minors that would include the cancelation of national health insurance and other state beneficial programmes.
Like a member of the Campaign for Jerusalem, which is a Palestinian human rights group, Roma Award said:
Israel is “collectively punishing” Palestinian Jerusalemites.”
“The families of the accused are also being punished,” Awad told Al Jazeera.
Areas expected to be thoroughly affected by the law are GAZA STRIP, EAST JERUSALEM AND WEST BANK.
