Israel holds 350 children in its prisons for their involvement in terrorist activities

ISRAEL holds some 6,500 Palestinians in its prisons including 62 women and about 350 children, Anadolu reports.

It was reported that Israeli forces rounded up seven Palestinians in overnight raids across the occupied West Bank.

The individuals were arrested for “suspected involvement in popular terrorist activities,” the army claimed in a Wednesday statement, without elaborating.

The detainees have been taken into custody for investigation, the statement said.

Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

Violence flared up in the occupied Palestinian territories since the United States relocated its embassy last month from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which was occupied by Israel in 1967 and represents the heart of the decades-long Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Since March, at least 123 Palestinians have been killed and thousands injured by Israeli gunfire during anti-occupation protests in the Gaza Strip.
