HEBRON (Ma'an) -- In an unprecedented move, Israeli forces on Sunday night put up posters in a refugee camp near Hebron featuring photos of locals Israeli forces claim are the fathers of those who commit "terrorist attacks."
The Arabic-language posters were put up at al-Arrub refugee camp and targeted the parents of "teenagers who attack Israeli vehicles."
Israeli intelligence posted pamphlets on walls at the entrance to the camp with photos and names of five residents of Al-Arrub refugee camp.
Ma'an obtained a copy of the posters, which warn the alleged fathers that their kids are involved in "terrorist attacks" against Israelis.
"We hereby notify you that your children are involved in terrorist attacks against citizens of the state of Israel. Practices by those young men endanger innocent citizens, and if they do not stop what they do, the IDF will have to take action to stop these practices."
It was unclear whether the poster refers to incidents of stone-throwing which target vehicles driven by Israeli settlers in the area, or if it referred to attacks on Israeli military vehicles.
The pamphlet is undersigned by Abu Salam from the IDF command. It includes names and photos of nine fathers of young men who allegedly carry out attacks against Israelis.
The names are Amjad Mousa Younis Titi, Ahmad Muhammad Hasan al-Hasaniyya, Khalid Salamah Muhammad al-Jundi, Zuhdi Abdul-Rahman Abdul-Aziz Mahthouth, Khalid Abdul-Fattah Abdul-Aziz Jawabrah, Musallam Muhammad Musallam Abu Sal, Zein Addin Atallah Hammad Jawabrah, Taysir Abdul-Rahman Muhammad Titi and Abdul-Rahman Hasan Ibrahim Abu Sal.
"Stop them before it's too late," the pamphlet concluded.
Al-Arrub refugee camp is located on the Hebron-Jerusalem road, immediately south of the Gush Etzion Israeli settlement block and beside an Israeli checkpoint.
There are 19 refugee camps in the occupied West Bank, within which live about a quarter of the 771,000 registered refugees in the territory.
More than 760,000 Palestinians -- estimated today to number 4.8 million with their descendants -- were pushed into exile or driven out of their homes in the conflict surrounding Israel's creation in 1948.
