RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two of President Mahmoud Abbas' grandchildren gave letters to the US president during his visit to Ramallah on Thursday.

Firas wrote that 168 Palestinian children were in Israeli prison, including 15 of Malia's age and 20 of Sasha's age, referring to Barack Obama's children.

"Please get them out. Make Israel stop arresting kids," the 10-year-old wrote.

Ziad, 14, wrote that Palestinians have been fighting for freedom for 65 years.

"Mr President, this occupation that we're under is the last occupation in the whole world. Your Excellency, we have a dream too and this is why we're here today."
