JERUSALEM November 22.2022 (Saba) – The Israeli enemy has detained over 50,000 Palestinian children since the occupation of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967, the Palestine Liberation Organization said.
The PLO Detainees Affairs Commission said on Sunday the majority of children were arrested from their homes at night hours, while others were arrested from the streets or on their way to school or back home, according to Palestinian media.
Out of that figure, the commission said, virtually 160 children are still being held behind bars in Israeli detention centers. Among the detainees are three girls, of whom two are 16 years old and the third is 17. Some others are held under Israel’s administrative detention, which allows incarcerating Palestinian inmates without trial or charge.
The Zionist enemy frequently carries out wide-ranging arrest campaigns across the West Bank under the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
