Fatah posted on its Twitter account a photo of a young boy hurling rocks with a slingshot, along with an explanation to Palestinian Arab children on how best to throw rocks, watchdog Palesitnian Media Watch (PMW) reported.
Fatah's tweet reads:
"In order to hit the target, there are three conditions:
1. Stand stable and balance your legs, arms, and body well
2. Focus your gaze on the center of the target, and do not look at anything else
3. Keep the desired balance between your body and your weapon; you are the one that controls the weapon, and not the other way around
If you did not understand this, read it again, and if you still have not understood, here is a pictorial example for you."
لإصابة الهدف هناكشروط ثلاث— حركة فتح (@fatehorg) December 16, 2017
١. قِف بثبات، ووازن جيداً بين قدميك ويديك وجسمك
٢. ثبّت نظرك في مركز الهدف، لا تلتفت الا الى اليه
٣. احفظ التوازن المطلوب بين جسمك وسلاحك، انت من يسيطر على السلاح لا العكس

Rocks hurled at moving vehicles have caused hundreds of injuries and many deaths, including infants killed by stones thrown at their family's cars.
Yehuda Haim Shoham, aged 5-months; Yonatan Palmer aged 12-months (his father Asher was also killed); Adele Biton aged 3l, were killed by rocks thrown at their cars by Palestinian Arab terrorists.
The 5 terrorists convicted of murdering Adele were all teen-aged.
PMW called on UNICEF to issue a stern condemnation of Fatah's recruiting children to commit acts of terror, since according to PMW, "Recruiting children to attempt to kill others and to endanger their own lives is clear child abuse."
PMW has exposed similar posts by Fatah calling for violence. In one post on Facebook, Fatah urged Palestinians to "strap on your weapon," while in others the movement called for "rage," and to "continue the intifada."
Palestinian Authority (PA) textbooks contain incitement against Israel and Jews, and the PA itself has said that terrorism is "part of the culture."
