Libel: Israel deliberately targets Palestinian children

Op-ed by Palestinian National Council member Khaled Mismar:
“Take note of how the enemy targeted our children [in the 2014 Gaza war] – most of the Martyrs (Shahids) were children – in addition to the women, elderly and handicapped. This is the barbarity of the occupation, which has surpassed Nazism in its crimes. Do you know why they target our children? I will tell you. The late President, [our] icon Yasser Arafat, would always declare that a boy or girl from among the children of Palestine would raise the Palestinian flag over the walls of Jerusalem, over the turrets of its mosques and churches. That is why they are afraid of the children.”
