Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli military occupation arrested a Palestinian child after raiding his home in central Hebron city in southern West Bank.

Security sources told Safa Agency that a military force abducted Mohamed Salhab, 15, from Bab al-Zawiya area and moved his to an unknown destination. 

Israeli authorities frequently detain children and charge them in violation of child protection laws.

Defence for Children International Palestine (DCIP) said that a total of 159 Palestinian children between the ages of 12 and 15 were imprisoned and prosecuted in the Israeli military court system during October 2013.

DCIP reported earlier that Israeli soldiers killed a teenage Palestinian boy outside Jalazoun refugee camp, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, on Saturday, December 12.

In a June report, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child said it expressed its "deepest concern about the reported practice of torture and ill-treatment of Palestinian children arrested, prosecuted and detained by the military and the police".
