THE LOSS OF PALESTINIAN CHILDHOOD
Al-Ayyam, Ramallah, April 4
Photos of young Palestinian teens detained and arrested by the Israeli occupation forces have, sadly enough, become too commonplace in our everyday lives – we see them on television, social media and in newspapers.What is less known, however, is what happens to these children once they are thrown in jail. There, in the dark recesses of solitary confinement, these young Palestinian boys and girls are stripped of their basic rights and subjected to manipulation and torture, until they reluctantly plead guilty.
