UK lawyers' report: 4 years on less than 3% of recommendations have been implemented

This month marks four years since a delegation of prominent British lawyers published a report on the treatment of Palestinian children under Israeli military law. The Foreign Office funded report – Children in Military Custody – found undisputed evidence that the military detention system violated at least six articles under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and two articles under the Fourth Geneva Convention. After 4 years just one of the UK report's 40 recommendations has been substantially implemented.
