Speaking Tour: Defence for Children International – Palestine Section
Please join us to hear from Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Programme Director at Defence for Children international – Palestine Section (DCI-Pal). The speaking tour is part of PSC’s national campaign on child prisoners, and the Lobby of Parliament for Palestine on Wednesday 22nd November.
Israel is the only country in the world that systematically prosecutes children in military courts – between 500 and 700 each year. The Israel Prison Service revealed that an average of 204 Palestinian children have been held in custody every month since 2012.
Ill-treatment in the Israeli military detention system remains “widespread, systematic, and institutionalised throughout the process”. These were the conclusions of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) report ‘Children in Israeli Military Detention Observations and Recommendations‘.
