Detained children are often deprived of food and water and are beaten, insulted, threatened and intimidated, the report said
Israel occupation arrested 745 Palestinian children since start of 2019, many of whom were subject to numerous rights violations, Palestinian rights group revealed on Wednesday.
According to figures issued by the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club (PPC), nearly 200 children were being held in various detention centres across Israel as of Tuesday.
The figures were released ahead of World Children’s Day which was marked yesterday.
Palestinian children, the rights group said, arrested by Israeli occupation forces experience many forms of violations as soon as they are taken from their homes.
Children are being interrogated under very harsh conditions and without the presence of any of their parents or lawyers.
According to the rights group, the minors are denied their right to education while inside the Israeli occupation prisons.
Some of the children, the report stressed, are denied family visits and proper medical treatment.
They are often deprived of food and water and are beaten, insulted, threatened and intimidated, the PPC report said.
As a result, it continued, many are obliged to give false confessions and agree to pay high fines handed to them.
While others are held under administrative detention, imprisonment without charge or trial.
