NABLUS, (PIC)– Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) in Nablus condemned detaining and torturing the children by the Israeli occupation authorities.

PPS said in a statement on Tuesday that the occupation forces have been torturing the children, arrested during the clashes or from their homes.

Raed Amer, director of the PPS, said that the Israeli forces have arrested more than 100 citizens, mostly children under the age of 18, and accused the occupation of torturing and brutally hitting them, in violation of all humanitarian norms.

He pointed out that 17-year-old boy Shaker Imad, from Balata refugee camp, was arrested by the occupation soldiers who hit and attacked him, leaving him with broken hands and injuries all over his body. The boy was sentenced to 4 months imprisonment.

The Israeli forces arrested more than 20 children in the village under the age of 16 years, while they were playing.

According to PPS, the majority of detainees were transferred to the interrogation and detention centers in the prisons of Jalamah and Petah Tikva.

Amer called on the Israeli government to stop its policy of detaining the children and the women, and to release the captives.
