Lawyer Gil Gabay said the children’s rights had been violated.

‘We are talking about children aged 12 and 13 who were arrested last night at 11pm.

‘They were investigated during the night against legal instructions. They slept on a chair in the police station,’ he said.

‘I think they should have been treated differently. I don’t think they should have been treated like criminals.’
