Child Abuse in the West Bank

There is a new film out by Defense of Children International (DCI), which shows how children are routinely mistreated by Israeli Defense Forces in the occupied West Bank. Some of the appalling statistics revealed in the film:
70% of children who have been arrested have also been beaten
17% of those arrested have been place in solitary confinement
7% have been tortured with electric shocks
4% have been sexually abused

Thanks to the Teacher Solidarity website for posting this.
