‘israel arrested 300 Palestine kids in 3 months’
At least 300 Palestinian children have been arrested by Israeli forces since the beginning of the year, says the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club.
The rights group released the figures in a report that documented a series of violent raids in which Palestinian children were detained, beaten and abused, the Middle East Monitor reported on Wednesday.
The Palestinian advocacy group’s report, which was released to mark Palestinian Children’s Day, slammed the Tel Aviv regime for its atrocities against children all over the occupied Palestinian territories.
It also called on the UN International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and other international human rights groups to pay more attention to the plight of Palestinian children.
The Palestinian Ministry of Culture has also called on the global community to help protect the children of Palestine, which make up 45.8 percent of its total population.
