End Child Detention Now

Israel arrests at least seven hundred children per year, many are tortured and threatened with rape to obtain false confessions.

Abuse of Palestinian children detained by the Israeli occupation forces - who are usually detained in the dead of night as a form of intimidation or deterrence - varied between handcuffing, which reached 97%, blindfolding 92%, beating and kicking 69%, verbal abuse, signing confessions in Hebrew, solitary confinement, using electricity in torturing the child by attaching wires to his testicles and many other forms of abuse and torture.

In 2009 Israel killed more than four hundred children - some burned to death by white phosphorus shells dropped by the IDF in densely populated Gaza areas.
