Israel issues poster threatening to arrest children

QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces posted flyers in a Qalqiliya village overnight Friday threatening children with arrest, a local committee said.

Murad Shtawey, spokesman for the local popular resistance committee, told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers raided the village of Kafr Qaddum at 1.30 a.m., firing stun grenades and tear gas canisters.

After Israeli troops left, locals found the flyers with images of four children aged between 10 to 14 posted on village walls. A caption on the flyers read: "We are the army, beware we will catch you if we see you, or we will come to your home."

An Israeli army spokesman did not return calls seeking comment.

As of April 2013, there are 238 Palestinian children imprisoned in Israeli jails, according to Defense for Children International Palestine.
