Palestinian human rights groups say Israeli forces are systematically killing Palestinian children and youths in the occupied West Bank.
The rights groups say there is a growing trend among Israeli soldiers to target Palestinian children and youths.
They have also documented several instances of Palestinian youths shot dead by Israeli troops in recent days across the region.
Over 1,940 Palestinians, including 470 children, have lost their lives since the Israeli military unleashed fatal assaults on the densely-inhabited strip on July 8.
Figures show more than 22 Palestinian children and youths have been killed by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank over the past month. Most of them were shot dead during continuous protest rallies against the Israeli onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip.
Israeli soldiers have frequently used live ammunition and plastic bullets to disperse thousands of angry anti-war Palestinian protesters in the occupied region.
Political experts believe Israel’s ongoing savagery and relentless attacks on youths is aimed at ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. They say the Tel Aviv regime seeks to empty the entire Palestine of its native inhabitants.
This comes as Israeli authorities are also systematically acting to change East al-Quds’ identity.
Meanwhile, a report published by the al-Aqsa Foundation in October 2013, said the Israeli regime is planning to build a synagogue in al-Aqsa Mosque compound as part of its efforts to further Judaize the occupied Palestinian territories.
Over the past decades, Israel has tried to change the demographic makeup of al-Quds by constructing illegal settlements, destroying historical sites, and expelling local Palestinian population.
Over half a million Israelis live in over 120 settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the West Bank and East al-Quds. The international community considers the settlements as illegal.
