Since the beginning of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the Palestinian children have been the victims of any confrontation or conflict in which the Israeli occupation authorities are a party.

For example, the three military operations launched by the Israeli occupation on the Gaza Strip. In the 2008/2009 aggression, the occupation authorities killed 318 children. In the 2012 aggression, it killed 32 children. In 2014, it killed 530 children. As for the Marches of Return that broke out in March 2018 and continued until November 2019, the occupation authorities killed 62 children. The occupation authorities also applied this systematic behavior in confrontations and protests in the West Bank. The occupation authorities seek to mislead international justice and absorb the anger of international public opinion by announcing the opening of investigations into the killings and violations against children, and then closing them again, which confirming that they are fake investigations. The last of these fake investigations was the investigation of the shooting in the head of the child Malik Issa, 8, from occupied Jerusalem on February 15, 2020, which later resulted in the removal of his left eye. To absorb the international reaction, the occupation authorities announced an investigation into the incident, but on December 3, the Israeli police closed the investigation file. On December 4, the occupation soldiers killed the child Ali Ayman Abu Alia, 14, after he was shot in the stomach during the occupation authorities’ suppression of the demonstrations and protests that took place near the eastern entrance to the village of Mughayir, northeast of Ramallah. Four other young men were injured in the protests. The child Abu Olaya was taken to the hospital, where he died after a few hours.
