Israel automatically prosecutes children in military courts, it is the only country in the world that does this.
In 2018 around 500 Palestinian children will be arrested and detained by Israel’s military – some of these children will experience systematic ill treatment and torture.
Ahed Tamimi is only one of these children.
The Palestine Alliance is calling on all groups around Scotland to hold vigils this Saturday, 6 January 2018, in support of Ahed Tamimi and all Palestinian child prisoners.
