NLFI report on the abuse of children as soldiers

One of the ugliest features of the Israel-Palestine conflict is the cynical manipulation of young children by the Palestinian leaderships and armed militias, which is generally not highlighted in the Western media.

We feel it is of the utmost importance that as many people as possible are aware of the realities of what is actually happening on the ground.

Children are being killed or mutilated due to a campaign of indoctrination to commit acts of violence, are being used as human shields and are abused in building terror tunnels.

We urge you to read the attached document, which explains in detail the many situations in which children are subject to horrific practices and are deprived of their right to childhood, enshrined in international human rights law.

Child soldiers in the Middle East – report

This document has been sent to a number of prominent opinion-formers, and we are hoping to circulate it as widely as possible.
