220 Palestinian Children Imprisoned in Israeli Occupation Jails

August 25, 2019

While thousands of Palestinian children start the new school year in West Bank and Gaza Strip, 220 children still imprisoned in Israeli occupation jails in miserable conditions.

By kidnapping Palestinian innocent children, the Israeli occupation is neglecting all international human rights and laws which guarantee the freedom of education and movement for all human beings, especially children.

According to Prisoners' Center for Studies, Israeli occupation forces practice daily violations against Palestinian minors including, physical and psychological torture, solitary confinement, exemplary punishment, provocative inspections, and fines.

The Palestinian Prisoners' Center for Studies calls international rights organizations specialized in children to follow up the conditions of detained minors in Israeli occupation prisons. It also calls to put pressure upon Israeli occupation in order to free all Palestinian children and allow them to continue their education as other children in the world.
