"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 705, August 15, 2014: Report: Israel has detained 3 000 Palestinian children since 2010
Israeli forces arrested nearly 3,000 Palestinian children from the beginning of 2010 to mid-2014, the majority of them between the ages of 12 and 15 years old, according to a new report published by the Addustour newspaper. The Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights' report documented dozens of video recorded testimonies of children arrested during the first months of 2014, pointing out that 75 per cent of the detained children are subjected to physical torture and 25 per cent faced military trials.
The disappearance of Mohammed (1) occurred at the end of a day of racist rampage in the streets of Jerusalem. Claiming to take revenge for the three young settlers whose bodies, according to the authorities, were found, hundreds of protesters, chanting "Death to Arabs", attacked Palestinians who had the misfortune to be in their path. Many of the latter were seriously injured. The French and American Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Fabius and Kerry, expressed "horror" at the death of Mohammed, and demanded the punishment of the perpetrators, who are unlikely to be identified as other than Israeli Jews.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 701, July 18, 2014: Israeli forces detained 740 Palestinian children during the first 2 months of 2014 and terrorize daily many more
Reprisals: Three settler youths were allegedly kidnapped Thursday June 12th while hitchhiking between Bethlehem and Hebron. Ahmed al-Lulu, 10 described the terror he felt during the bombing of Gaza "I woke up at midnight, and I couldn't go back to sleep. My father tried to calm me down, but I was too scared. My younger brothers were crying."
Gaza :The Israeli military continued to pound Gaza using Apaches and F-16 jets and insist that the move was in response to rocket attacks that happened on Saturday and not to the kidnapping. Eyewitnesses in Gaza told Middle East Eye that the Israeli aerial bombardment (18 targets) continued for the third night into Tuesday. Some of the targets included training camps for Palestinian groups and civilian properties. Most of the raids happen late at night.
