Israeli forces killed 19 Palestinian children in Gaza in 2011

Palestine Information Center – 10/12/2011

GAZA — The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have killed 19 Palestinian children and wounded 200 others during attacks on the Gaza Strip in the course of 2011, medical sources said on Saturday.

Adham Abu Salmiya, the spokesman for the ambulance and emergency department, said in a statement that the youngest of those killed was two-year-old Malek Shaat followed by three-year-old Islam Quraqai.

He said that one third of the wounded in IOF attacks on Gaza in 2011 were children, noting that one of them, ten-year-old Yousef Al-Za’lan, was still in intensive care after the Israeli raid on Friday in which his father and younger brother were killed.

Abu Salmiya charged the IOF with deliberately targeting civilians especially children, adding that the IOF shelling of residential neighborhoods in Gaza at a late night hour has serious psychological impacts on children.

He asked all human rights groups and those concerned with child welfare to urgently intervene and pressure Israel to halt its crimes against children in Gaza and to secure a safe life for them.
