Ramallah, June 1 (RHC)-- Nearly 2,100 Palestinian children have lost their lives and many more sustained injuries at the hands of Israeli military forces since 2000.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Information, in a statement released on Tuesday, 2,079 Palestinian children have been killed and approximately 13,000 injured by the Israeli military over the past 16 years.
The statement added that around 12,000 Palestinian children have been arrested, and 420 are currently being held in Israeli prisons.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces have arrested more than two dozen Palestinian civilians during separate operations across the occupied Jerusalem.
The Commission of Detainees' and Ex-Detainees' Affairs announced in a report released on April 3 that six Palestinian minors are being held by the Israeli authorities under administrative detention.
There are reportedly more than 6,500 Palestinians held at Israeli jails. Hundreds of the inmates have been apparently incarcerated under the practice of administrative detention, which is a policy under which Palestinian inmates are kept in Israeli detention facilities without trial or charge.
