"According to the Palestinian Government Media Center, there is an “alarming rate” of accelerated Israeli attacks on Palestinian children in the year 2011. So far this year, 9 Palestinian children have been killed by Israeli settlers and soldiers, and approximately 200 children have been injured by either the Israeli occupation forces or by Israeli settlers.

The statement claimed that 'Hundreds of children are being illegally rounded up monthly by Israeli forces and detained, abused, and imprisoned without due process of law and in direct violation of international, Israeli, and Palestinian laws.' The majority of these children are abducted by the Occupation forces, without informing their parents, and are questioned by the occupation forces.
The Palestinian Authority urged the UN to implement resolution 1998 which protects the right of children in conflict. The PA also urged non-governmental organizations to take legal action against these clear violations of international humanitarian laws.
The killing, injuring, abducting and imprisonment of Palestinian children by the Israeli occupation forces and Israeli settlers is a policy seen my many observers as targeting the future, since they believe that targeting Palestinian children is targeting the Palestinian future.
