Israel was criticized for keeping 160 Palestinian children in jails. UNICEF called on Israel to release the jailed juveniles, and to stop using violence against young detainees. Israel denied juvenile prisoners are being subjected to violence, and said they are being treated humanely. UNICEF also called on the Palestinian Authority to discourage children from taking part in the 14-month-old intifada against Israel.
