Agenda item 65: Promotion and protection of the rights of children (continued)

26. Mr. Mahmoud (Egypt), speaking on behalf of the Arab Group, ...

/...

29. ... A special framework needed to be developed to protect children living under Israeli occupation in Occupied Palestinian Territory, the occupied Syrian Golan and the occupied Lebanese areas of Ghajar, Shab`a Farms and Kafr Shuba. Those children should be able to enjoy a life free of violence, torture and abuse, and should not be forced to study a curriculum imposed by the occupation authorities. Palestinian children had a right to enjoy all their basic rights and freedoms in an independent state of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital, and Syrian and Lebanese children had a right to celebrate their national identities and to live in a world free of mines and cluster bombs. The group welcomed the appointment of Leila Zerrougui as Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, and called on her to devote greater attention to the condition of children in occupied Arab territories.

40. Ms. Fahmy (Egypt) ...

/...

43. Egypt was deeply concerned about attacks on schools and military use of schools by Israeli security forces in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, attacks perpetrated by Israeli settlers on schools and children, including by physically assaulting Palestinian children on their way to school. Children were also arrested and placed in detention, which prevented children living under Israeli occupation from enrolling in school and deepened their psychological and physical suffering.

95. Prince Jalal Al Saud (Saudi Arabia) ...

/...

97. ... He called on the international community to intervene to protect the rights of children in all conflict zones, including Occupied Palestinian Territory, where children continued to be subjected to murder, torture and human rights violations by the Israeli occupation authorities.
