In the early hours of Sunday morning, approximately 1am, the Israeli Army invaded the village of Burqa and kidnapped Montaser Mohammed Ahmad Salah (43 years old), Ma’an Waleed Abu Omar (22 years old) and the child Adham Hira’a Abu Nafiseh (17 years old). The Army invaded the homes of the kidnapped men and child, accompanied by Army dogs, using explosives to gain entry, destroyed property and terrorised residents. They also ransacked a local mechanics in the village.
Despite clear violations of international law, and the rights of children, Apartheid Israel continues to kidnap minors in the middle of the night. According to UNICEF 87% of its recommendations following its report published one year ago entitled “Children in Israeli Military Detention” remain un-implemented and ill-treatment still appears to be “widespread, systematic and institutionalised”. Apartheid Israel did commit to ceasing the practice of late night arrest raids for children but this has not been implemented.
At the end of March 2014, there were 202 Palestinian children held as “security prisoners’ in Israeli prisons. 52% of these children were detained inside Israel in violation of Article 76 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Israeli Apartheid prisons are equipped and services by the British/Dutch company G4S, in violation of international law. We ask all those that believe in justice to help to hold Apartheid Israel to account for its crimes and those that participate in facilitating those crimes by abiding by the request for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Apartheid Israel. We particularly ask that activists work towards actions related to the British/Dutch firm G4S, which supplies much of the prison infrastructure used by Apartheid Israel.
