Arutz Sheva reports: The head of the Israeli Fund for UNICEF (The UN Children’s Fund) has condemned the culture of incitement which encourages children to carry out terrorist attacks, as “child abuse.”

Jonny Cline, Executive Director of UNICEF’s Israeli Fund, made his comments following this morning’s attack in which two 13-year-old Arab girls stabbed a security guard in Ramle, central Israel.

While the pair were Israeli-Arabs, most other attackers – including children as young or even younger – have been residents of the Palestinian Authority. In this case as in previous attacks, the terrorists were inspired by ceaseless anti-Semitic incitement emanating from Palestinian terrorist groups and the highest levels of PA leadership.

“The exposure of these two children to the type and intensity of incitement and violence that would lead to this kind of act is unadulterated child abuse,” Cline told Arutz Sheva.
