Days Of Palestine – West Bank
Israeli occupation forces last night detained a Palestinian child after raiding his family's home in the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron in the West Bank, said a local source.
The forces raided and searched several homes in the town before detaining Bahaa Ra'ed Meqbel, 17 years old. He was moved to the illegal Israeli colonial settlement of Karmi Tzour, nearby.
Israel is the only country to systematically detain and prosecute children below the age of 18, with about 190 Palestinian child detainees in its prison until today.
