BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up 30 Palestinian children in the Housan village, south of Bethlehem, over the past two months, the ministry of prisoners in Gaza said in a report on Saturday.

It said that the children were arrested on charges of throwing stones and resisting settlers and were interrogated in Etzion and Ofer jails.

The ministry’s lawyer Hussein Al-Sheikh, who met some of those children at Etzion, said that all of them were detained after midnight in their homes after terrorizing them and their families.

He quoted the children as saying that they were savagely beaten at the time of their arrest and during interrogation including painful slapping and beating with batons and rifle butts and were forced to sign documents, which they did not know their contents.
