Reform of Israel's military court system in the occupied West Bank has failed to stop "systematic violation" of Palestinian minors' rights, an Israeli NGO said Tuesday.A UNICEF report last year cited affidavits taken from 165 West Bank children held by Israel in 2016, saying that all had been subjected to ill treatment or breaches of due process, including not being properly advised of their rights.B'Tselem said figures provided by the Israel Prisons Service showed that as of Feb. 28, 2018, it held 356 Palestinian minors, nine of whom were serving sentences and 257 awaiting indictment or trial.Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi arrested in December for slapping two Israeli soldiers who entered the yard of her West Bank home has become a vivid symbol of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Tamimi, who was 16 at the time, is being held in an Israeli prison until the end of proceedings against her.At least 32 Palestinians and five Israelis have been killed since Trump's Dec. 6 announcement.
