International media reports that the United Nations has taken action to blacklist the Israeli army, citing “violations of children’s rights” during armed conflicts.

AFP reported late Tuesday, June 11, that the Israeli army has been blacklisted for the first time for failing to respect children’s rights in Gaza.

Similarly, Reuters reported that the Israeli army was added to the list of violators of children’s rights due to repeated attacks on schools and hospitals and that Hamas and Islamic Jihad groups were included for abducting children.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres announced that the Israeli army, including the country’s armed and security forces, Hamas and Islamic Jihad groups, and conflicting parties in Sudan, were added to the annual global list of violators of children’s rights for killing and maiming children in 2023.

The UN report on the situation of children last year shows that violations of children’s rights globally increased by 35% compared to 2022.

It is noteworthy that 7,837 violations against 4,247 Palestinian children were recorded in the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, with Israeli soldiers and settlers reported as the main perpetrators.
