On the occasion of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Day, April 17, below is a media brief on the situation of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons.

This Media Brief underlines Israel’s arrest and confinement policy targeting Palestinian children, who are regularly subjected to ill-treatment, torture, physical and psychological violence during arrest, interrogation, detention and/or under home arrest. It includes two case studies; one on Dima al- Wawi, 12 years-old, who is the youngest female Palestinian prisoner in Israeli prisons, and the second is on Fadi Al-Shaloudi, 13 years-old, who is currently being held in his own home in Silwan.
