UNICEF publishes damning report on detained Palestinian children

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has reported that Israeli violations against detained Palestinian children are still ongoing, despite an alleged Israeli decision to improve their conditions, and the methods of interrogation.

It said that Tel Aviv took steps to address some of the issues of concern outlined in a report that was released back in March of this year.

The March report indicated that detained Palestinian children face systematic mistreatment.

The UNICEF said that despite its earlier report violations against detained children are still ongoing, despite the 38 recommendations that outlined these violations and the manner to address them.

The report hoped that Israel would improve the ill treatment of children, and start treating the children within international standards.

It said that Tel Aviv is “testing some of the reformed measures” used to deal with detained children. more
