Israel has detained tens of thousands of Palestinian children since 1967, according to the official Palestinian Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs (CDA).
CDA said on Sunday that more than 50,000 children were detained since Israel captured the West Bank and East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East War, the Palestinian news agency WAFA, reported.

The CDA statement came on World Children’s Day, an annual observance that seeks to “promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare," according to the United Nations.
@PaulWal31268048 @_JackJazz @ian_argente Are you @RachelReevesMP and @Keir_Starmer proud? Israeli soldiers killing unarmed Palestinian children? You support apartheid. You support Israeli soldiers killing Palistinian children. You support them going into schools kidnapping kids. pic.twitter.com/4spAl1fBxo— Reddave74 (@reddave74) November 22, 2022
There are 160 children who continue to be detained by Israel, according to the CDA.
The statement added that most children were taken from their homes at night, though others were detained in the streets, or while on their war to or from school.
