Hamas, Islamic Jihad to be on UN blacklist for harming children in war: diplomatic source

Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad — as well as Israel — will be included on an upcoming UN list of countries and armed forces deemed as failing to protect children during war, a diplomatic source told AFP Friday.

Confirmation of the two groups’ inclusion comes after the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations lashed out at his national military’s addition to the annual list of violators.
