CWS Supports Efforts to End the Military Detention of Palestinian Children

January 31, 2018

Church World Service is pleased to endorse the Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act, H.R. 4391. We commend these efforts to address the military detention, prosecution and mistreatment of Palestinian children and are concerned that the Israeli military has detained approximately 10,000 Palestinian children, who are often held for extended periods of time without access to parents or attorneys.
