RAMALLAH (West Bank)- Palestinian Prisoners' Club (PPC) disclosed that Israeli occupation authorities have about 400 Palestinian children, aged between 11 and 17 years old, in their prisons at a time when the world is celebrating the Universal Children's Day (November 20th).
The PPC, in a statement issued Friday on the occasion of the Universal Children's Day, said the Israeli occupation authorities have incarcerated nearly 400 Palestinian children, some of whom have been given sentences while other are subjected to administrative detention, including 11 minor girls.
Some of the jailed Palestinian children were shot by Israeli soldiers' live ammunition during their arrest.
The statement added that in 2015, hundreds of Palestinian children and minors have been arrested, reaching 700 in October.
Most of the jailed children are from two cities, namely al-Khalil, in the West Bank, and Jerusalem.
The PPC has material evidence about Israel's mistreatment of Palestinian children, and which amount to crimes, such as the arbitrarily use of live ammunition against them before detention, incarceration in inhuman prisons with insults, calling names, threats and harassment.
