No Minor Matter, 2011

July 2011

Every year, Israeli security forces arrest dozens of Palestinian minors in the West Bank on suspicion of stone-throwing. B'Tselem's report "No Minor Matter" reveals that their rights are severely violated throughout the criminal justice process. While Israeli law meets international standards in granting criminally suspected minors special protections, Israeli military law in the West Bank provides very few protections of this kind to Palestinian minors.

The figures do not include fatalities in the Gaza Strip and Israel during Operation Protective Edge (8 July 2014 through 26 August 2014). These figures will be added once the relevant investigations are complete.
