Three more 'Palestinian' kids killed retrieving rocket launchers

Three more 'Palestinian' children were killed this evening in Beit Hanoun and another was critically wounded after they were sent by adults to retrieve rocket launchers that were used to bombard Israeli cities in the western Negev. Two other 'Palestinian' children were killed in a similar incident last Tuesday night. The children killed this evening were cousins and they were killed by an IDF tank shell:
The IDF said that it attacked rocket launchers west of the town in a ground operation.

The army explained that there were a number of launchers in the area which were pointed at Israel and that troops opened fire at several suspicious looking people who were handling them.

Palestinian terrorists in Gaza often send children to retrieve rocket launchers after Kassams are fired into Israel.

The IDF said that if the fatalities were indeed children the army regretted the use of minors for terrorist purposes.

Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Palestinian Health Ministry, amending his initial report of three dead, said 10-year-old Mahmoud Ghazal and his 12-year-old cousin Yehiya Ghazal were killed.

Their 10-year-old cousin Sara Ghazal was critically injured, he said [and died later. CiJ].

A relative of the children, Wasfi Ghazal, said he heard the sound of an explosion and then children screaming. He held both Israel and the rocket squads responsible. [Sorry Wasfi, but only one side is responsible. Only one side is using children as cannon fodder. Only one side has introduced ten and twelve-year old children as combatants. And you and I both know which side that is. You and I both know which side exhorts its children to be 'martyrs' and to follow in the footsteps of Mohamed al-Dura. You should be ashamed of your so-called 'culture' that teaches kids that death is better than life. That has nothing to do with the 'occupation.' That has to do with the fact that the 'Palestinians' are despicable scum who would as soon murder their own children for their 'honor' as let them live and thrive to be decent human beings. CiJ]

"We are victims of the occupation and victims of the misbehavior of some of the fighters who are randomly choosing our area to target Israel," he told The Associated Press.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat condemned the killing of the children, predicting violence would breed more violence.

"This will add to the complexities and feed the fire," Erekat said. [Go back to your mansion and shut your mouth Saeb. You couldn't give a damn about any child who is not your own. CiJ]
I'm sorry but there is NO excuse for sending ten and twelve-year olds to retrieve rocket launchers or on any other kind of 'military' mission. From the inside of a tank, you can't tell who is out there, and you shoot first and ask questions later. The 'Palestinians' think that if they turn enough kids into martyrs, they will be able to murder Israelis instead. It's a despicable attitude.

Where is Human Rights Watch? Where are all the children's advocacy organizations? How come no one cares?
