PRISONER EXCHANGE AND PALESTINIAN CHILD PRISONERS

That this House welcomes the prisoner exchange which has led to the release of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit and 477 Palestinian prisoners with a further 550 to be released in the next two months; notes, however, that the list of prisoners released in the first stage on 18 October 2011 does not include any children; further notes that according to figures released by the Israeli Prison Service and Defence of Children International-Palestine, at the end of September 2011 there were 164 Palestinian children (12 to 17 years) detained by Israel, including 35 between the ages of 12and 15 years; and that Israel's treatment of Palestinian child prisoners has raised serious concerns under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; and therefore calls on the Government and the international community to support the appeal by UNICEF for the Israeli government to release all Palestinian child detainees so that they can be reunited with their families.

Amendment 2274A1 - PRISONER EXCHANGE AND PALESTINIAN CHILD PRISONERS

leave out from `months;' to end and add `notes that while the detention of youths is to be regretted, Israel is in the difficult position of having little choice but to detain Palestinian children due to their suspected participation in terrorist acts; condemns terrorists' organisations which target Palestinian youths and which recruit them with the promise of becoming martyrs (shaheed), if they die while committing a suicide attack; further notes that 110 minors were arrested in the first half of 2008 for suspected terrorist activities compared to only 85 in 2007 and that between September 2000 and April 2007 217 minors were arrested due to involvement in suicide bomb attacks; and further notes that the recruitment of youths for terrorist purposes is in grave breach of the international laws of armed conflict, as stated in the Geneva Convention of 1949 and the two additional protocols of 1977.'.
