Over 50000 minors arrested by Israel since 1967


Head of research in the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs, Abdel Nasser Farawneh, said that over 50 thousand arrest cases among Palestinian minors were documented since Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories in 1967, including 16655 cases since the outbreak of the second Intifada in 2000, also known as al-Aqsa Intifada.
Farawneh said during the two-day fifth European conference on Palestinian prisoners  held in Brussels on Saturday that arrests among children are part of a systematic policy aimed at distorting and destroying the reality and future of Palestinian childhood.
He noted that the annual arrests rate reached 700 cases from 2000 to 2010, which rose significantly from  2011 and 2018 to reach 1250 cases annually.
Farawneh called on participants to unite efforts in order to promote the legal status of prisoners and the legitimacy of their struggle in general so that to expose the crimes and violations committed by the Israeli occupation against Palestinian children.
