Israeli Settlements and Palestinian Child Labour

Human Rights Watch has released a report documenting the use of child labour in some Israeli Settlements. Palestinian children as young as 11 are employed as agricultural workers.

Children reported poor working conditions, including carrying heavy loads, being made to work in temperatures exceeding 40 C and exposure to toxic pesticides. Israeli labour law prohibits youth from working under these conditions, but the law is not being applied in the West Bank.
