Direct from Jerusalem: Israeli arrests & detention of Palestinian children

WASHINGTON - Children and families in Silwan, East Jerusalem, are facing constant violence, both physical and psychological. Illegal armed settlers are taking over Palestinian homes and land, often viciously attacking Palestinians on the street. Meanwhile bulldozers carry out “administrative demolitions” which leave many homeless and threaten thousands more. Hundreds of people each year – including children as young as six, and many teenagers – are arrested, beaten, and tortured by Israeli police.
