HEBRON (Ma’an) — Two Palestinian youths being held in Israel’s Etzion detention center south of Bethlehem have been beaten by Israeli officers, a lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society said Sunday.

Jacklin Fararja recently visited Badri Abu Zalata, 14, and Kazhim al-Najjar, 16, and said they told her they had been punched and assaulted with rifle butts in the face.

Fararja added that the two minors would be transferred to Ofer detention center near Ramallah.

The two were recently detained near the separation wall near their village in the Hebron region, she said.

In late June, a Palestinian Authority lawyer said that more than 250 Palestinian children were being held in Israeli prison, a number that has likely increased since then as more than 1,500 Palestinians have been detained since.

Around 7,000 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli prisons.

According to a 2013 report by the UN’s Children’s Fund, Israel is the only country in the world where children are systematically tried in military courts and subjected to “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment.”

Over the past decade, Israeli forces have arrested, interrogated, and prosecuted around 7,000 children between 12 and 17, mostly boys, at a rate of “an average of two children each day,” UNICEF said.

 



 

THE LEGAL RIGHT OF RESISTANCE

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

Right to Resist

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275 (2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
