MEMO | January 4, 2015

B3jqqHmCUAAUP45Israeli forces injured a total of 1,190 Palestinian children in the West Bank during 2014, according to a UN agency report.

The figure, contained within a weekly briefing covering the period 23-29 December, accounts for 20 percent of all Palestinian injuries.

UN OCHA noted that 280 of the injuries were recorded in July in the Jerusalem governorate, in the context of confrontations with Israeli occupation forces after the murder of Mohammad Abu Khdeir, and in light of Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip.

More than in 1 in 5 of the child injuries were caused by Israeli forces’ use of live ammunition, with the rest from rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas inhalation, and assault.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Israel had detained 1,266 Palestinian children in 2014, an average of seven children every two days.
