There are currently over 6000 Palestinian prisoners detained in Israeli, including 454 in administrative detention (held indefinitely without trial), and 163 children. 73 Palestinian prisoners have died since 1967 as a result of torture in Israeli jails. In some cases children as young as 12 have also been subjected to ill-treatment and torture. Women prisoners are usually shackled to their bed before and after giving birth. Each year 500-700 Palestinian children from the West Bank are prosecuted in Israeli military courts. One such case is that of the Hares Boys.
