UN adds Israel military to global list of offenders that harm children



The United Nations Secretary-General has added Israel’s military to a list of offenders for committing violations against children in 2023. Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad will also be listed. The decision has been described as “shameful” by Israel’s UN envoy. The global list covers violations such as killing and maiming, sexual violence, abduction, recruitment and use of children, denial of aid access, and attacks on schools and hospitals. Israel’s Foreign Minister has warned of consequences for Israel’s relations with the UN. The report aims to shame parties into implementing measures to protect children. Israel’s Prime Minister has criticized the decision, saying the UN has joined those who support Hamas murderers.
