Protect Palestinian children, UN expert tells Israel

Richard Falk

A UN expert has urged Israel to protect Palestinian children that are arrested by the country's security forces.

Richard Falk is the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories.

He has warned that prolonged occupation deforms the development of children.

And that Palestinian children in the West Bank and Gaza feel even more insecure because of violence, night raids and house demolitions.

Richard Falk spoke to Reema Abaza on steps Israel should take to fulfill its human rights obligations.
