"This shocking report discloses persuasive evidence that confessions in Hebrew are extracted and signed under torture despite the children often not understanding the language. A particularly disturbing claim in the report is that 47.5% (19) of the children interviewed suffered such abuses in the illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank. The treatment of these children, according to the report, systematically violates the UN Convention against Torture and the Fourth Geneva Convention. The international community must insist that the perpetrators of such abuses are brought to justice and if the abuses continue effective sanctions must be imposed."
- Sir Geoffrey Bindman, Action for Palestinian Children
The latest report of the last 6 months of 2010 contains testimonies of 40 children (aged 12 to 17), 62.5 percent of whom were accused of throwing stones.
