On Monday morning, during Palestinian clashes with the IDF at the Dheisheh camp, a 14-year old boy named Omar Lotfi Khumour was shot and killed.

While the IDF didn't specifically acknowledge killing anyone, they did say that troops opened fire after Palestinians attacked them with rocks, petrol bombs, and improvised explosive devices. 

The boy appears to have been a member of the PFLP terror group.

Their press releases refer to him as "comrade," a term they only use for members. His body was wrapped in a PFLP flag, and his funeral procession was dominated by PFLP flags, which organized it.

He is the second child member of the PFLP to be killed this year. 

I don't recall ever seeing NGOs like Human Rights Watch or Amnesty International condemn the recruitment of children to Palestinian terror organizations, even though it is well documented - even children as young as 9 have been praised by Palestinian groups for helping in war.

As far as I can tell, every single one of the 14 Palestinians killed by the IDF this year was a member of an armed group and/or actively engaged in an attack. Not a single innocent civilian hs been killed in 2023 up until now. Here are the most recent 10:

Also, while it appears that Israel has accelerated its incursions into Palestinian cities recently, according to the UN biweekly OCHA report the number of such operations was virtually the same in 2021 and 2022. 

The difference is that the Palestinian armed groups are far more active in attacking the IDF, with predictable results.

UPDATE: Khumour wrote a will before he was killed, indicating that he planned to attack and to die.
