#Palestinian #children have suffered disproportionately as a result of the #Israeli #Occupation



#Humanrights organizations report systemic abuse of children by Israeli security forces. Here's how to address it

During the first #Intifada in #Israel- #Palestine, one of the most controversial aspects of the Israeli reaction to the uprising in 1987 was #YitzhakRabin’s reputed policy of ordering soldiers to break the bones of those throwing rocks, as shown in this video. While Rabin denied having soldiers break the bones of #demonstrators, he did admit to ordering the extra-judicial application of ”force, might and beatings” upon civilians. Since that time, whether it be an official policy or not, such practices–emphatically illegal under international human rights law–continue unabated. What has recently been brought into the public eye is that such illegal beatings and other acts of violence continue to be aimed not only at adults, but also at Palestinian children, some as young as 11 years old
