Israel currently detaining 200 Palestinian children: Prisoners group

The Palestinian Prisoners Society has said that 200 Palestinian children, including 23 from Gaza, are being held in Israeli prisons.

The organisation released its statement on Palestinian Child’s Day, which is marked each year on April 5.

“This is the bloodiest year against Palestinian children, with more than 14,000 killed in Gaza in the last six months, in addition to the 117 killed by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem,” it said.

Since October 7, Israeli troops have detained more than 500 children in the West Bank, “after which they are subject to unfair, unjust trials in military courts,” the organisation said.
