Palestinians continue to dispatch young teens to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel. Yediot Aharonot reports that the boys apparently planned to stage an attack at the checkpoint.

Two Palestinian youngsters aged 16 and 15 carrying 11 pipe bombs and improvised weapons were detained at the Jalameh roadblock north of the West Bank town of Jenin Wednesday.

Initially, the army said the boys, Mohammed and Hamam Daragmeh, were 12 and 13 years old.

Sappers later blew up the explosive devices in a controlled detonation. The youngsters apparently planned to stage an attack at the checkpoint, the IDF said.

This follows a similar arrest two weeks ago and represents a disturbing example child abuse by Palestinian terrorist groups. All of this can be traced to the underreported incitement to violence that is part of mainstream Palestinian society.

As CAMERA has long indicated:

The PA’s relentless incitement campaign employing television, newspapers, summer camps, textbooks, and rallies to foment hatred of Jews, and to encourage violence and "martyrdom" is strictly forbidden under the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child..." (November 16, 2002)
