Palestinian children speak of beatings in Israeli detention

The Defence for Children International (DCI) is concerned that Israeli military arrests are violent and children often lack proper legal representation during the court process, and that the impact of detention lasts well into adulthood.

Fawzi al-Junaidi, the 16-year-old Palestinian boy whose arrest while blindfolded by a group of Israeli soldiers in occupied Hebron was captured in a photo that went viral, spoke to Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan about his detention.

Meanwhile, Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi, who was charged with assaulting an Israeli soldier, is due back in an Israeli military court on Tuesday. But she is not the only child detained by the Israeli military.

Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan reports from Hebron.
