Days of Palestine, West Bank –Mass Palestinian protests were organised along West Bank cities this week, demanding the release of 14-year-old girl inside Israeli prisons since 31 December.
Malak al-Khatib, 14, was kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces near her school in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
The little girl was blindfolded, handcuffed, and accused of throwing stones at the army and possessing a knife.
After being interrogated without a lawyer or family member present, and attending five Israeli military court hearings, she was sentenced on January 19 to 60 days in prison.
The girl was forced to endure extreme cold in Israeli Hasharon Prison, especially during the first weeks of January when storm Huda descended on occupied Palestine.
Israeli prison authorities routinely deny detained Palestinians blankets, warm clothes and even proper medical treatment and medications.
At any given time, there are around 200 Palestinian children in Israeli occupation jails. The majority of them are accused of stone-throwing, often without evidence except for forced confessions.

Ex-Palestinian prisoner and specialist in prisoners issues Abdul-Nasser Farwaneh said: “More than 10,000 Palestinian minors in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem have been held by the Israeli occupation for varying periods since 2000.”
“The number of Palestinian children arrested by Israeli forces, especially in occupied East Jerusalem, has sharply risen,” Farawna declared, saying that the number of children arrested by Israeli occupation had increased by 87 percent over the past three years.
“The majority of arrested children were subjected to beatings and torture by Israeli security personnel while in detention,” he asserted.
