I am deeply concerned with the increasing Israeli violations against Palestinian children including the murder of 15 year Ali Abu Alia near Ramallah on Friday 4 December 2020. Ali was killed as a result of a shot fired to his abdomen by Israeli forces whilst observing a peaceful demonstration.

Ali is the second teenager to be killed in under two months by Israeli forces. In October, Amer Abdel-Rahim Snobar was helping his friend move a car when Israeli forces arrived. Doctors stated he likely died from asphyxiation as a result of strangulation by the Israeli forces.

Israel use unwarranted lethal force against Palestinian children as well as live ammunition against children, which is a violation of United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Israel routinely subjects Palestinian children to night raids and force them to sign confessions without any legal representation.

Currently, 15 Palestinian children are being held in solitary confinement and 186 children in ‘security’ detention.

Israel consistently and seriously breech the rights of Palestinian children and these gross violations must be condemned.

As your constituent I would urge you to take this extremely important matter further and write to the Minister for Middle East and North Africa to unreservedly condemn Israel’s killing of 15 year old Ali Abu Alia and Israel’s treatment of Palestinian children.

Thank you
