One of the most dangerous places in the world for children is the occupied Palestinian territories where, in the last year, at least 20 Palestinian children have been killed and over 1,000 others injured by Israeli forces. Gaza’s 1 million children are especially at risk, as food, medicine, and electricity are in short supply, and 97% of drinking water contaminated. The world has Israel to thank for this man-made humanitarian crisis.

Two young Palestinian men, Abdul-Khaliq Burnat and Mohammed Tamimi, had their day in (Israeli military) court last weekend. They have much in common: they both come from prominent nonviolent activist families, both are victims – along with their families and entire towns – of collective punishment, and it looks like neither young man will be going home anytime soon.
The first Palestinian death of 2018 is a teenage boy – a relative of Ahed Tamimi, who was arrested after slapping a soldier who had shot her cousin in the face. Her mother and another female cousin were also arrested.
Israeli forces imprison 16-year-old Palestinian girl, her mother, and her cousin – after shooting another cousin in the face
Mohammed is 14 and in a coma from being shot in the face. Now 2 of his female cousins and his aunt are in prison. Because in occupied Palestine, Israel takes revenge on the victim.
