#nowaytotreatachild appears on The Stream

The detention of Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi made international headlines. The 16-year-old Palestinian's defiant slapping of an Israeli soldier was heard across the world as footage of the incident went viral.

Tamimi, an already prominent activist, was later detained and charged with 12 different offenses. But Ahed Tamimi is not alone. There are hundreds of Palestinian child detainees in Israeli military detention during any given month.

Brad Parker, co-leader of the #nowaytotreatachild campaign and international advocacy officer at Defense for Children International - Palestine, joined Al Jazeera's The Stream on January 11, 2018 to discuss the situation of Palestinian children in Israeli military detention and the detention of Tamimi.

Defense for Children International - Palestine (DCIP) is a local, independent Palestinian human rights organization committed to securing a just and viable future for Palestinian children in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
