The United Nations has added the Israeli military to the world body’s annual “list of shame” that features the offenders committing deadly violations against children.

Gilad Erdan, the Israeli regime’s UN envoy, was officially notified of the decision that has been made by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, on Friday.

The list is attached to a report on children and armed conflicts that the UN chief submits to the UN Security Council each year.

The report covers such atrocities as killing and maiming children, subjecting them to sexual abuse, abducting or recruiting children, denial of aid access, and targeting schools and hospitals.

Erdan reacted to Guterres’ decision by calling the Israeli army “the most moral army in the world.”

Israel's foreign minister Israel Katz also said the decision would impact the regime's relations with the United Nations.

The developments came amid the genocidal war that the regime has been waging against the Gaza Strip since October 7 last year.
