An artist has dedicated a new mural in the besieged Gaza Strip to Palestinian children detained by Israeli occupation forces.
The painting, shared on social media by Gaza-based journalist Isabel Pérez, highlights a 72% increase in these detentions last year.
Israeli forces have detained nearly 6,000 Palestinian children over the past five years, subjecting many to torture and abuse.
Last year 2015 #Israel detained 2,000 Palestinian children which is a 72.1% increase in number of children detained in 2014 and 134% in 2013. This paint has been made in #Gaza on their support.
