Palestinian Children: Caught in the Crossfire

In 2000, courageous 13-year-old Fares Odeh faced down an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tank on the outskirts of Gaza City. As he defiantly hurled his rock at the menacing tank, Associated Press photographer Laurent Rebours took a photo that has become the defining image of the Palestinian intifada. These images reflect the role that children have played in their respective liberation struggles. Tragically, Fares was shot in the neck and killed by IDF troops just nine days after his picture was taken. Fares' weeping mother, Enaam Odeh, 41, told Associated Press reporters that she repeatedly told her son to stay away from the Karmi crossing point between Gaza and Israel, the site of daily confrontations.
