Israel isn’t on UN list of parties that kill or injure kids

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s new list of parties that kill or injure children in armed conflict does not include Israel, as some UN officials had recommended. But the UN chief makes clear in the report circulated Monday that the killing and injuring of thousands of Palestinian children in Gaza and the West Bank is unacceptable. Ban urges Israel “to take concrete and immediate steps, including by reviewing existing policies and practices, to protect children, to prevent the killing and maiming of children, and to respect the special protections afforded to schools and hospitals.”
