B'Tselem condemns mass arrests of Hebron minors

"If there are specific suspicions against youths over the age of criminal responsibility, the police have the authority to detain them and interrogate them, but this cannot justify the mass detention of youths for unspecified suspicions, let alone the arrest or detention of children under twelve," B'Tselem said in a statement released Thursday.
The statement follows an incident in Hebron in which the IDF, following a stone-throwing incident, apprehended 27 minors, including at least 14 under the age of 12.
