Appeal Lodged for Child Protection

Download PDF for this date

Two prominent Israelis appealed to the defense establishment Wednesday to refrain from killing or injuring children in the course of repressing the Palestinian uprising in the administered territories.

They also urged parents and influential figures in the territories to prevent children from participating in disturbances.

The calls were made by Dr. Moshe Etzioni, a retired supreme court justice who heads the Israeli branch of the International Child Protection Organization, and Dr. Menahem Horowitz, director-general of the branch.
