  'Israel' arrested 41 new children last month

By َQudsN - March 9, 2020

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli authorities last month arrested 41 
Palestinian children and jailed them in Ofer prison, according to the 
Committee of Prisoners and Former Prisoners.

Israeli authorities also imposed heavy fines, estimated at 41,000 Shekel 
(over $11,000) on jailed children in the same month.

The Committee explained that 20 children, of those arrested last month, 
were kidnapped from their houses, 6 from streets, 1 for not having 
permission, 6 were summoned for interrogation before being arrested, and 
8 were arrested at military checkpoints.

Two children were brutally attacked and beaten during their arrests and 

The committee added that in February, 20 children were prosecuted and 
sentenced to jail periods between 7 months and one year.

The occupation state jails a total of 53 children in poor conditions in 
its jails. Palestinian children, like adults, face arrest, prosecution, 
and imprisonment under an Israeli military detention system that denies 
them basic rights.

The occupation state has the dubious distinction of being the only 
country in the world that automatically and systematically prosecutes 
children in military courts that lack fundamental fair trial rights and 
protections. The occupation state prosecutes between 500 and 700 
Palestinian children in military courts each year, according to Defense 
for Children International.
