I expect Israel to respect and protect the rights of all children, Palestinian and Israeli.... Urge your Members of Congress to join Representative Betty McCollum in signing the letter to Secretary of State John Kerry asking the State Department to make the human rights of Palestinian children a priority in the United States’ relationship with Israel.

In February UNICEF shared the details of their ongoing dialogue with Israeli authorities about the rights of children in military detention. Dialogue is a positive first step, however as long as Palestinian children continue to be arrested and detained by an Israeli military system that violates their basic human rights more must be done.
