Heartwarming children's news from Gaza

First, from the Jerusalem Post:
...Two Palestinians, identified by Gaza doctors as children ages 10 and 12, were killed in the northern Gaza Strip.

The IDF said the air strike targeted Palestinians who were loading a Kassam onto a rocket launcher and that terrorists were hit.

Palestinian rocket teams have been known to send young children to retrieve rocket launchers after the projectiles are fired, the IDF said in a statement, adding: "In light of the reports, it seems likely that this was the case here."

And then from Ma'an:
An 11-year-old boy was seriously injured when an explosive device went off in Yabna refugee camp, in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

A medical source from Abu Yousef An Najjar hospital said that Mahmoud Mohammad was admitted to hospital, suffering from serious injuries.

Child abuse seems to be one of the founding principles of Hamastan.
