#ActForChildren | Violence against Palestinian children
The Israeli military continues to use an indiscriminate and disproportionate level of force against Palestinian children; beyond its consistent failure to protect the security of children during settler attacks in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military has also been responsible for directly targeting and killing children during times of conflict in the Gaza Strip.
At least 3,000 Palestinian children have been killed since the year 2000 as a result of occupation-related violence, settler attacks and military incursions.
You can help support children in Gaza affected by violence
After years of siege and regular military operations, children in Gaza are traumatised and in urgent need of psycho-social support. Interpal proudly supports the Palestine Trauma Centre who runs the Family and Community Therapy project for traumatised children and their families in Gaza. Find out more about the project here.
