Israeli forces have killed three Palestinian minors and detained 52 others since the start of this year, according to the Palestinian Information Ministry.

In a statement on Sunday, the ministry accused Israeli authorities of “escalating assaults against Palestinian children”.

It said Israeli attacks have sharply risen since last month’s decision by US President Donald Trump to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Last year, 17 Palestinian minors were killed and 1,620 others arrested by Israeli forces across the Palestinian lands, the ministry said.

According to the statement, a total of 350 children are still languishing in Israeli prisons.


The Palestinian territories have remained tense since Trump’s decision, which has triggered a worldwide outcry and protests in several countries.

  1. This is beyond enraging to me. I don’t doubt for a second they calculated ahead of time what this embassy announcement in December would cause – they likely welcomed this as a means to further reduce the Palestinian population. I already couldn’t stand our President & saw he was just another means to an end for the Greater Israel plan, but since December I feel nothing but pure disgust, contempt and loathing.
    Look at how low attendance was for the U.S. embassy opening in Jerusalem. I heard louder applause at the 4th grade spelling bee. Trump didn’t even bother to attend, with a square named in his honor, no less? No, instead his Chabad handler & his convert shiksa attend in his place.
