“Children behind bars: Palestinian Child Prisoners”

This Cafe Palestine highlighted the repeated and systematic breeches of UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by Israel through its cruel and cynical policy of detaining Palestinian children. Every year, on average, Israeli Military Courts prosecute between 500-700 Palestinian children. Children as young as 12 years old are arrested and detained. The most common charge is stone throwing.
