Terrorists Bury Bombs on Soccer Field, Kill 14 Children In Baghdad

14 Children Murdered on a Playground… No Bodies Thrown in Front of Cameras… No World Protests…

As it stands right now there were 28 killed in the Qana attack on Sunday, down from 54, 16 of them were children. Leaflets were dropped on the town weeks before the attacks warning people of the likelihood of violence.

Meanwhile, at least 14 children were murdered Wednesday in Baghdad while playing soccer at two different fields where terrorists had buried bombs in the pitch hoping to kill the children who would be playing ball there.

Don’t expect any protests.
