Kids part of Palestinian struggle, have been called “RPG kids” and “rock-throwing generals”

PA TV’s program Palestine This Morning interviewed Dr. Jihad Al-Batsh, Vice President of Al-Quds University in Gaza, about the Palestinian Conference for the Palestinian Child and Challenges of the Twenty-First Century:
 Al-Batsh: “During the Palestinian struggle, President Yasser Arafat used to call them ‘the important ammunition, R.P.G. kids’ (i.e., rocket projected grenade). And during the first Intifada, they were the ‘rock[-throwing] generals.’ And even when he died as a Martyr, in his last moments before he died as a Martyr, he spoke of the Palestinian child.”
