Marking Palestine Children’s Day, the Palestine Prisoners’ Club revealed that there are 140 Palestinian children languishing in Israel jails, including two under administrative detention.

The Geneva-based movement noted that it has documented 27 cases in which Israeli forces held children in solitary confinement citing investigation purposes for two or more days.

The organization said the practice amounts to “torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.”

It said it has registered the issuance of administrative detention orders against 36 Palestinian children since October 2015, two of whom are still in detention.

In 2020, Israeli forces killed nine Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem al-Quds, and the Gaza Strip, six of whom were killed with live ammunition, according to documentation collected by DCIP

More than 7,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently held in some 17 Israeli jails, with dozens of them serving multiple life sentences.
