    Head of the Census Department of the Palestinian Commission of
    Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs, Abdul-Nasser Ferwana, stated
    that the Israeli army continues to attack and abduct Palestinian
    children in violation of international law, kidnapping 3755 children
    in the last four years, including 1266 in 2014.

Ferwana, also a researcher and a former political prisoner, said the 
kidnapping and imprisonment of children should push the international 
community and different human rights groups to act and protect them, as 
the escalating violations are jeopardizing their future, especially 
since they are subject to torture and abuse in Israeli prisons.

Ferwana stated that most of the 1266 children kidnapped in 2014 were 
taken prisoner in the second half of the year, after three Israeli 
settlers went missing on June 12, 2014, and were later found dead.

“The number of arrests in 2014 witnessed a 36% increase compared to 
2013, and a 43.7% increase compared to 2012,” Ferwana said, “Statistics 
reveal an alarming increase in the kidnapping of children, especially in 
occupied Jerusalem.”

He said that the army has kidnapped nearly 700 children in Jerusalem, 
which represents around 55.3% of the total number of children kidnapped 
by the army in occupied Palestine this year.

Ferwana further stated that the sharp increase in the abduction and 
torture of children poses serious threats to their future, and to their 
mental and physical well-being and development.

He said the policy of child abduction by the Israeli military requires 
immediate international attention in order to stop the Israeli 
violations against the children.
