NGOs call for public support in ending use of Palestinian child soldiers

An estimated 10,000 children are trained in Gazan terrorist camps each year, while at least 160 have died digging terror tunnels into Israel.

A coalition of non-governmental organizations is urging the public to help stop the use of Palestinian children as soldiers and war resources by their leaders and terror groups in the region.
There are an estimated 300,000 child soldiers across 20 countries world-wide, including any person under 18 who is either recruited or used by an armed force or armed group in any capacity, according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

While the plight of child soldiers in Africa in particular has received global attention, their Arab counterparts in the Palestinian territories have often been ignored by the international community, as the human cost of using children to carry out terror attacks or as human shields has become overlooked in the political battles raging over the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Yet the children who survive their ordeal often carry the scars of trauma with them into their adult years, preventing them not only from having a normal childhood, but from being able to live fulfilling lives as adults.

Now a group of NGOs has banded together in a bid to raise the issue of Palestinian child soldiers on the world stage.

From February 18 -21, the Coalition to Save Palestinian Child Soldiers is holding a Solidarity Week, and is urging members of the public to sign an open letter to MEPs and US child welfare advocates to condemn the use of Palestinian children as soldiers.
