Navideshahed- A new report has found that Israeli forces have arrested 31 Palestinian children in the second half of February, mostly in the occupied West Bank, in addition to injuring several others.

According to the report released by the Palestinian Authority’s Information Ministry on Monday, most of the arrests took place in the cities of al-Quds (Jerusalem), al-Khalil (Hebron), Bethlehem, Ramallah and Nablus.
Those arrested were between 13 and 18 years of age, and many of them were beaten upon their arrest.
The report further noted that some of the arrested children were taken from their homes, while others were seized at Israeli checkpoints.
Palestinian officials and rights groups say Palestinian children are subjected to torture during interrogation.
According to recent figures by the Prisoners’ Affairs Ministry, there are 187 Palestinian children currently in Israeli jails on various charges.
In January, the Public Committee against Torture accused Tel Aviv of torturing Palestinian children, saying the minors are routinely held in outdoor cages for hours after their arrest.
The organization said the children have to endure freezing temperatures outside transit facilities.
This kind of torture is a long-running practice meant to terrify the detained children, the Public Committee against Torture added.
Head of the Census Department at the Palestinian Ministry of Detainees, Abdul-Nasser Ferwana, said last month that Israeli soldiers have kidnapped and detained more than 10,000 Palestinian children since the beginning of the al-Aqsa Intifada in September 2000.
He added that the Israeli regime has imprisoned more than 11,000 Palestinians, including about 2,500 children, over the past three years.
