Leave a comment

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Dozens of activists on Sunday held a protest in front of the Israeli municipality in Jerusalem against the arrest of Palestinian children in East Jerusalem neighborhoods, a Ma’an reporter said.

The protest was organized by a committee of parents in the al-Tur neighborhood of East Jerusalem in coordination with several other activists.

Demonstrators called for Israel to end its aggressive actions against Palestinian children, especially around schools in al-Tur.

According to a 2015 report by the Child Rights International Network, some 700 Palestinian children per year are arrested and face “ill-treatment” by Israeli forces.
