The United Nations is set to add Israel and Hamas to its global list of entities accused of violating children's rights. This decision comes ahead of the UN's annual report submission to the Security Council next week. A UN spokesperson confirmed to AP News that Israeli authorities have been notified of this decision.

The UN Secretary-General António Guterres will include Israel and Hamas on the annual global list of countries and groups violating children's rights in armed conflicts. Other countries on the list include Russia, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and Iraq.

Thousands of Palestinian children have been killed during Israel's invasion of Gaza, which began after the October 7 terrorist attacks by Hamas and other militants on Israel. The exact number of casualties varies, but the decision to add Israel to the list has further strained relations between the UN and Israel. These relations have been deteriorating since Israel's military campaign in Gaza commenced after the Hamas-led attack on Israel on October 7.

Gilad Erdan, Israel's ambassador to the UN, expressed his anger at the secretary-general's decision on X, saying, "The only one who is blacklisted today is the secretary-general whose decisions since the war started and even before are rewarding terrorists and incentivizing them to use children for terror acts."

Erdan condemned the decision, stating that Hamas has been using children for terrorism and uses schools and hospitals for this purpose. He believes the decision to add Israel to the list is "outrageous and wrong."

In May, Erdan sparked controversy during a General Assembly emergency special session when he pulled out a portable shredder and symbolically destroyed the UN Charter.
