In a press release on the Palestinian children’s day on Friday, the group stated that the Palestinian children in Israeli jails are exposed to intimidation and physical abuse, deprived of seeing their families, and forced to pay heavy fines.

It affirmed that many children suffer from health problems, especially skin infections, and are medically neglected, while the Israeli interrogators extort them into making confessions in exchange for treatment.

The group also said that some children are administratively detained without trial and their right to education is denied.

It noted that dozens of other detainees were children when they were taken prisoners, but they exceeded their childhood age because of the long period they have spent in jails.

The group appealed to human rights organizations to pressure the Israeli regime to end its violations against the Palestinian children.
