Israeli Goons Set Record for Murdering Palestinian Children in 2016


Way to go Israel. The world's most moral army has again showed they're nothing more than psychopathic blood-thirsty butchers who delight in killing kids.

Israel sets record for killing Palestinian kids in 2016

A new report says 2016 saw the highest number of Palestinian children killed by Israeli troops over the past decade, warning that Tel Aviv is not being held accountable for its lethal attacks.

The report by Defense for Children International (DCI), a Geneva-based NGO focusing on children's rights, noted that 35 children were killed and 83 others injured by Israeli troops in 2016.

It warned that Israeli forces are not being held accountable for using firearms against the Palestinian protesters and stone-throwers.

Thirty-two of them were killed in the occupied West Bank, out of whom 19 children were between the ages of 16 and 17 and 13 others were between 13 and 15 years old, the report said.

“We can say Israeli soldiers are encouraged to use lethal force against children in the absence of any kind of accountability. They do not observe the laws protecting civilians under occupation,” Ayed Abu Eqtaish, a DCI director, told Press TV correspondent in Ramallah.

“We have evidence where there was no reason to kill those children. They did not pose any kind of threat. In many cases, soldiers fired so many bullets at the slain children to make sure they were dead,” he added.

Helmi al-Arja, from the Hurryat Center for Defense of Civil Rights, told Press TV that Israeli forces are confident they will not be tried for their crimes.

“Trials will only be the mock ones, because the victims are Palestinians,” he added.
