The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) denounced on Wednesday that since the beginning of 2022, Israeli security forces have killed 20 Palestinian minors in the West Bank.
On the Twitter account of the agency for Palestine, he noted that the day before the uniformed men killed two 16-year-olds in the cities of Nablus and Hebron, north and south of the West Bank, respectively.
“Every child has the right to life, to be protected and not to be exposed to violence,” the institution recalled.
According to the Ministry of Health, troops from the neighboring state killed 355 Palestinians and injured 16,500 in 2021, including 87 minors, 60 women and 18 elderly people.
The rapes systematically practiced by the Tel Aviv troops not only leave a mark on our minors, but also deprive them of their basic rights, recently denounced the Palestinian Minister of Social Development, Ahmed Majdalani.
They suffer the violence, brutality and crimes carried out daily and in an organized manner by the Israeli security forces, Majdalani said in a statement on the occasion of the Day of the Palestinian Child, celebrated every year on April 5.
