IN PHOTOS: Israeli teenagers train with lethal weapons to patrol checkpoints 6Jan12 January 6, 2012

Alternative Information Centre  -  3 January 2012

The Israeli daily Haaretz reported that several dozen teenage volunteers have been trained and armed with lethal weapons, including M-16s, and are aiding the Israeli Border Police (Magav).   Known as Noar Magav (Border Police Youth), the children and young adults patrol checkpoints and detain Palestinian workers who are attempting to enter Israel without a permit. These photos offer a compelling look at the militarization of Israel’s youth.
