AIC Video - Children in Silwan

Children in Silwan:

"aicvideo | December 02, 2010

The Palestinian village of Silwan sits just south of the Old City walls in East Jerusalem. It counts 55,000 residents, 50 percent of whom are below the age of 18. It is estimated that 75 percent of these children live below the poverty line. Since mid-September, approximately 50 Palestinian youth have been arrested from Silwan under the auspices that they threw stones at Israeli soldiers or settler security guards. These arrests, residents say, have paralyzed the neighborhood's children and directly violate their human rights. For more information, visit
