Palestinian students on Monday sent half a million letters to UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon in support of the children detained in Israeli jails.
The initiative was organized by the Palestinian Prisoner Society in cooperation with the ministry of education as part of a campaign launched recently in solidarity with 14-year-old Ahmed Manasra and other children in Israeli prisons.
Organizers of the event said, during a sit-in staged outside the UN office in Ramallah, that these letters were written to remind the UN and its institutions of their role towards the Palestinian children, who are exposed to different violations and crimes by Israel.
About 350 Palestinian children, including 12 girls, under age 18 are being held in the jails of Megiddo, Ofer and Hasharon.
