Israeli Military Detention – No Way to Treat a Child


CJPIP is building community awareness and mobilizing support for the No Way to Treat a Child campaign.  Many Palestinian children in the Occupied Territories live in fear that they will be snatched and detained by Israeli authorities.  Their fear is more than a child’s nightmare: Children aged 12-17 in Israeli military detention are often subjected to physical, emotional and psychological harm. The 47-year-long Israeli occupation has developed a systematic and sustained pattern in which abuse of children is the norm. For more information on this practice, visit the No Way to Treat a Child website.
