On the occasion of the Palestinian Child's Day / Abu Baker: violations against children in Israeli jails never happened throughout the history of United nations

on . Posted in slider

The Head of the Commission of Detainees' Affairs, Qadri Abu Baker, stated that the Israeli authorities is holding nearly 200 minors distributed at Ofer, Megiddo and Damoun prisons, which lack the minimum elements of human life. They are subjected to torture and degrading treatment which contradict the international principles of human rights.

Abu Baker stated that the violations against children in Israeli prisons never happened in the history of the United nations, which is a shame on this organization and all human rights organizations, that were unable to protect those children.

He pointed out that the Israeli forces have arrested more than 17.000 Palestinian minors since 2000, and many cases of detention have been recorded to children under the age of 10. The majority of them were subjected to physical and psychological torture.

Abu Baker said that the rate of detaining children from Jerusalem is the higher rate, where tens of them got arrested on a daily basis and held illegally. In addition, Israeli authorities impose the policy of house custody against them, displace from Jerusalem and impose high fines on them.

Abu Baker stated that targeting children from Jerusalem is part of the policy of isolating the city of Jerusalem from the other cities.

However, Abu Baker called on the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the Human Rights Council and other international organizations, especially the UNICEF and Amnesty International to move and take serious measures to practice pressure against the Israeli government to release all detainees, especially children.
