The United Nations expressed on Monday concerns over the situation of 500 Palestinian children incarcerated in Israeli jails.


UN deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said during a press conference held at the UN headquarters in New York that the number of Palestinian minors held in Israeli lock-ups has hit 500.


The UN official called on Israel to either work out the legal situation of detained minors and of all Palestinians held with neither charge nor trial in occupation prisons, or to release them immediately.


Palestinian children in Israeli penitentiaries have been made to endure dire detention conditions and harsh torture tactics, most notorious among which being strip-searches, heavy beating, verbal assaults, and exhaustive interrogation to force confession.
