Use Red Hand Day to raise awareness of the plight of Palestinian child soldiers

February 12 is Red Hand Day, a world wide initiative to raise awareness against the use of child soldiers

Recent examples are Afghanistan, Chad, Centralafrican Republic, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), India, Iraq, Israel and the occupied territories, Myanmar (Burma), Pakistan, Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Thailand and Yemen. "
