Israeli policemen on Sunday afternoon detained and physically assaulted a Palestinian child in Occupied Jerusalem before releasing him later on the same day.
A family source said that 10-year-old Adnan Amr was severely beaten and sprayed with pepper gas in his face by Israeli policemen from Har Homa (Abu Ghneim) settlement, southeast of Jerusalem, after chasing him on motorbikes.
The policemen chased Amr and other kids, who were going home from school, after a settler living in a seized house in Silwan complained he was stoned by Palestinian boys.
Amr was taken to a local medical center to receive treatment of the injuries he suffered during the assault.
The parents of Amr are noted pro-Aqsa activists in east Jerusalem, and the police already issued orders banning them from entering the Aqsa Mosque and traveling abroad
