How the jihadists try to use children, in order to provoke an incident that will be grist for their propaganda mills. From Israel National News, with thanks to Margelfand:
Golani soldiers won special recognition for saving an innocent Arab child who was sent to provoke IDF soldiers into shooting him.
The two Golani soldiers recently were manning a check post near Gush Katif when a 10-year-old boy suddenly ran towards them. Despite fears that the child was carrying explosives, the soldiers did not fire.
“The child fell into the arms of one of the soldiers,” said the troops” officer. “He hugged him to make sure he was not carrying a bomb. The child apparently received a few shekels to run towards the soldiers and provoke them into shooting.”…
Arab terrorists have sent dozens of children on life-endangering missions, including suicide bombings, and often use children to smuggle explosives and ammunition. Army officials explain that Palestinian Authority incitement in the school system and on television is one of the prime reasons for the increase in the use of children as terrorists….
Israeli defense sources report that that the PA ignores the involvement of children in provocations and arms smuggling and is not making efforts to stop incitement.
