The McGlynn: Israel, Our Ally?!

Hundreds of Palestinian children are arrested by the Israeli military every year for throwing stones at occupying forces.

They are tried in Israeli military courts and human rights organisations say the trials lack due process and are against international law.

When asked about the allegations, an Israeli foreign ministry spokesperson told Al Jazeera that the rights organisation that documented the abuses was “not a credible organisation”, and said that no such evidence had been shared with the Israeli authorities.

Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford reports from Abu Dis, in the occupied West Bank.
