Number of Palestinian Children (12-17) in Israeli Military Detention

Each year approximately 500-700 Palestinian children, some as young as 12 years, are detained and prosecuted in the Israeli military court system. The most common charge is stone throwing.

A key component of DCI-Palestine’s work is to provide legal assistance to children detained in Israeli military detention and to compile accurate statistics on the number of children detained at any one time. The table below shows the number of Palestinian children currently in Israeli detention at the end of each month. The table is updated monthly. The figures are compiled by DCI-Palestine from sources including the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) and Israeli army temporary detention facilities.
