The Israeli forces have detained 250 minors in Ofer military prison since the beginning of this year, the National Commission for Prisoners Affairs said in a press release on Tuesday.

“The attack on children is still ongoing, and the policy of targeting them is still at the same pace,” the commission added.

In the last month alone, 37 minors have been admitted to sections 17 and 18 of the prison, which are allocated to detained minors. 183 minors are now in the prison.
