The Systemic Incarceration of Palestinian Children

  • Palestinian children’s rights of survival, protection, education, health and development have been dramatically violated by Israel since the first Intifada. Palestinian children stand defenseless against Israeli policies that target them as potential “terrorists” and continue to justify and legalize a system in which child imprisonment and persecution is enforced under the umbrella of defeating “terrorism”.

    Français: Le nombre d’enfants palestiniens dans les prisons israéliennes a plus que doublé, à ce qu’a rapporté l’Intifada Electronique. Il y a actuellement plus de 300 enfants palestiniens détenus dans les geôles israéliennes, et leur nombre continue à augmenter ; depuis octobre les enfants constituent le cinquième des personnes arrêtées. En fait, le système carcéral de l’occupation israélienne a ouvert une nouvelle aile pour les enfants à la prison de Givon, logeant 75 enfants, laquelle est elle-même maintenant pleine.
