Police arrested a 14-year-old boy from Taibe yesterday, on charges of inciting and supporting terrorism over a post he allegedly made on Facebook, the Haaretz daily reports.
The boy was released today, on the condition that he not use social media for one month, Haaretz says.
The post shared featured Hamas terrorists in handcuffs in the upper half and IDF soldiers in captivity in the Gaza Strip in the lower half, with the caption “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, what comes next will be more difficult and cruel.”
Police claim that the suspect was the one who added the caption while the boy’s attorney denies this and insists that his client merely shared an existing photo.
The lawyer adds that his client learns at a school for children with special needs and does not read well, Haaretz reports.
