Israel’s war on Palestine and the suffering of children

Children in Palestine face severe psychological and social problems as a result of the conflict. These problems are compounded by poverty, lack of housing, arrests and beatings of themselves or their family members, and the scarcity of water, electricity, education and health care. Adolescents are also forced to confess and sign papers, without knowing what they say; they are locked up in interrogation centres for up to two months.
