Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction on Saturday ran a cartoon illustrating its claims that the IDF "executes" Palestinian Arab children, in a delegitmization of defensive actions to neutralize terrorists who have come as young as 11-years-old.

A unique twist in the cartoon, published on the website of Fatah's Information and Culture Commission and revealed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), is its accusations against the US of being complicit in the "executions" of young Arab terrorists.

The cartoon, titled "summary executions!," shows an IDF soldier shooting Palestinian Arab children who are tied and blindfolded, while an American soldier stands at his side reading from a paper and apparently justifying the "execution."

PMW notes that the setting of the drawing would seem to recreate the execution videos of Islamist terror organizations, such as Islamic State (ISIS), that show a statement read aloud before hostages are executed.

The flags of the US and Israel in the background also are reminiscent of the terror groups' execution videos.

In an ironic turn of events the report on the cartoon comes the same day that the UN bashed Israel for using "excessive force" in stopping Arab terrorists from murdering Israelis, echoing the PA's claims of "executions" and calling for Israeli security forces to be investigated.

The UN in particularly stated "deep concern" over how in the H2 area of Hevron in Judea alone, 16 of the 17 Palestinian terrorists involved in attacks against Israelis since October 1 were shot dead, while one was injured and arrested.
