Israeli Forces Are Brutal with Children

Israeli security forces have used unnecessary force to arrest or detain Palestinian children as young as 11. Security forces have choked children, thrown stun grenades at them, beaten them in custody, threatened and interrogated them without the presence of parents or lawyers, and failed to let their parents know their whereabouts. Israeli border police forces put a 11-year-old boy, Ahmad Abu Sbitan, in a chokehold while arresting him outside the gates of his school in an East Jerusalem neighborhood. This is way too harsh treatment of these young civilians. They do not deserve this and even if they do commit any type of crime even those in custody have proper rights and laws to protect them from this cruelty. Under the law they have to notify their parents as well who are probably worried sick about them! What can be done! Someone must make them stop and fast! How does the Israeli-Palestinian conflict make you feel? The Palestinians are also not completely innocent as they have done some of the same. Both sides need to settle this peacefully.
