Defence for Children International-Palestine, on Tuesday, accused the Israeli army of willfully killing Palestinian children in the occupied Palestinian territories, QudsNet reported.Since the start of October, Israeli forces have killed more than 180 Palestinians including 49 children.

According to Middle East Monitor, the organisation said: “Repeated killing and shooting of children by Israeli army, and preventing paramedics from offering medical aid to them is considered a form of extrajudicial killing.”

“Evasion from punishment” encourages Israeli soldiers to kill Palestinian children, noting that no “real” investigations are opened in the cases where Palestinians have been killed.

An official from the group reiterated that the official Israeli political echelon gave the army the green light to kill Palestinian children, after the latest ratification of laws governing the use of arms. (PNN)
