Israel Tortures Palestinian Children Kept in Prison for Months
After it was revealed Israel is arresting Palestinian minors for Facebook posts, a Palestinian agency says majority of those detained are tortured.
Israel has not only been detaining Palestinian minors over stone throwing and Facebook posts, the occupying force in Palestine has also been torturing most of those Palestinian children including beatings and sexual assaults, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs said Tuesday.
Luay Ukka, who works as a lawyer with the Palestinian committee, issued a statement after he visited the Israeli Ofer prison, where he said the number of Palestinian children had increased to 28 since last month, with 14 of them under 14 years of age.
“The overwhelming majority” of juvenile prisoners held at Ofer have been 'tortured, beaten, and humiliated' during the raids carried out by Israeli forces to detain them as well as during their interrogation," Ukka said according to a report by the Palestinian news agency Ma’an.
Ogólnie to już jest norma że rasa panów strzela do niewinnych , nieuzbrojonych . Jedyna ciekawa informacja , że takie "rewelacje" trafiają do mediów głównego nurtu . Zapewne to przez te nagłe upały , pewnie to jakieś niedopatrzenie z tą wiadomością .

Israel bombs Gaza for eighth day in a row as it threatens Hamas with war
Reports that the warplanes struck agricultural land in the eastern Zaitoun area of the besieged enclave
Israeli warplanes bombed the besieged Gaza Strip overnight after Palestinian militants reportedly fired a rocket into southern Israel, the army said.
The latest exchange came as Israel threatened Hamas - the de facto ruling party in the blockaded Palestinian territory - that it was risking "war" by failing to stop incendiary balloons it said were being launched across the border.
Egyptian security officials shuttled between the two sides in a bid to end the flare-up, which has seen more than a week of nightly Israeli attacks and rocket and incendiary balloon launched from Gaza.
"Earlier tonight, a rocket was fired and during the day, explosive and arson balloons were launched from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory," said an Israeli military statement released on Tuesday shortly before midnight (9pm GMT).
The army added that "fighter jets and [other] aircraft struck additional Hamas military targets in the Gaza Strip", reportedly striking a Hamas military compound.
There were reports that the warplanes had struck agricultural land in the eastern Zaitoun area of the enclave.
