According to the Jerusalem Post, around 1,000 Palestinian minors were arrested in 2013, and 82 percent of the arrests were for violent acts, ”such as the November murder of 16-year-old Eden Atias, numerous cases of attempted murder, shootings, possessing illegal weapons, membership in terror organizations, throwing Molotov cocktails and the range of stone throwing offenses.” Of those 1,000 minors, only 30 abuse complaints were filed.

I’m glad the IDF got these figures out, but it’s a shame it wasn’t in time to balance out recentAustralian media reports. Was John Lyons sloppy for not getting the facts, or did Israeli officials blow the opportunity to have their say?
