The Humanitarian Monitor | November 2010

Two-thirds of Palestinians injured by Israeli forces in Jerusalem were children. However, there was a significant decline in number of Palestinian injuries throughout the West Bank (46) compared to the 2010 monthly average (113). In the Gaza Strip, Israeli air strikes and targeting of people near the perimeter fence with ‘warning fire’ resulted in the injury of 26 civilians, including five children. Sharp increase in Palestinian children arrested by the Israeli authorities in the East Jerusalem, children reporting being mistreated during interrogation. More structures were demolished in East Jerusalem (17) than in any other month this year.
