A screenshot from the video.

A video shot at a Friday protest in the village of Nabi Salih, in the central West Bank, captured a striking image: that of a young Palestinian girl attempting to provoke Israeli soldiers. Soon thereafter the girl is joined by many other seemingly young-looking people from the village.

A senior IDF source told Ynet that intelligence indicates that pro-Palestinian activists pay Palestinian children from Nabi Salih and other nearby villages to confront the soldiers. “The soldiers are briefed on the fact that these protests are staged for the sake of provocation, so that they could be filmed acting violently and so that those videos could be distributed worldwide in an effort to harm the IDF’s image,” the officer said.

According to Ynet, Abir Kubati, spokesperson of the popular protest coordination committee, said: “I don’t understand what the army wants – they send soldiers into a Palestinian village and then dare to depict themselves as victims because the residents don’t welcome them.”

    Children are holy gifts from God. Each is given a pure and innocent soul. The parents of these unhappy children are guilty of a profound and ugly sin. Is this not the worse display of child abuse one can encounter? The ruination of a sweet and innocent soul with hate, anger, and murderous speech is child abuse. Shame on any parent that allows this kind of hate to be even a small part of any child’s life.

      One of the little girl’s close relatives was taken by these “innocent” and “brave” soldiers. Her parents cannot do anything to “protect” her from the inhumane actions done by the Israeli soldiers. I’m sorry but don’t speak if you do not understand their situation.

    What the hell are the adults thinking to allow these kids to act like that, well done to the actual ADULTS in uniform for showing such restraint, as a parent I would have slapped these kids backsides for putting themselves in a position of potential danger should the soldiers have decided enough was enough, then I would have slapped their parents for letting them act like hooligans.

    Notice all those cameras. WOW! Great education going on over there…

  • daniela lowinger

    I wonder if those girls would have screamed and done the same thing to any Palestinian man, if he would not have smacked them right away.
    Those are the ones that want us to give them a country??? to have those kind of people as neighbors?..

      I can’t believe I know someone who posted a comment on one of these sites. Hahahaha, hi Daniella!

  • Avigail

    I wonder how a “soldier” of the PLO or any other Islamic nation would react if some Jewish children were yelling and pushing at them? I’m sure not with the restaint that can be seen in this video. May Hashem continue to be our defense and protect our IDF soldiers.

    • Hannah

      Wow these amazing soldiers! How humane of them to restrain from hurting a child. Yeah let’s award them with the noble peace prize. Smh… society and it’s ignorance.

  • PEACE….
    We Israel are attacked on 2 fronts at the same time.
    The xtians and the arabs.

    Politicians preach peace…
    Arabs practice intimidation and war.


    why are the arabs permitted to continue to provoc us?

    silence to the JEWS have proven to be death sentences.

    • Hannah

      The poor Jews…the poor poor Jews. What shall we do to help them?? Oh wait I forgot AMERICA AND EUROPE ARE HELPING THEM AND SUPPORTING THEM TO KILL INNOCENT PALESTINIANS . While the Palestinians have no military help… the poor Jews…
