The detention of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons is extremely worrying.
In 2012, an independent report on Children in Military Custody was funded and facilitated by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Since its publication, Ministers and our Ambassador to Israel have strongly urged the recommendations of the report to be implemented. Minister of State, Alistair Burt, raised the issue of children in detention with Israeli authorities when he visited the region in August.
As with all issues relating to the Holy Land, I take a firm interest in this human rights issue and hope that progress can be made.
