Two Kids a Day

Two Kids a Day

About 700 Palestinian minors are arrested and jailed every year by the Israeli security forces in the West Bank. They are taken from their homes at night and interrogated, with mental and physical pressure, which violate international law. Almost all of them are convicted and sent to prison. The most common offence is stone throwing; but behind the official reasoning, there’s an underlying systemic motive to these mass arrests of children: it’s the most efficient mechanism to deter the population and preserve Israel’s 50 years long occupation of the West Bank. The security forces exploit this fragile point of Palestinian resistance to curb any uprising, mostly in the villages closest to Jewish settlements.
