A US-based non-profit group has released a short film documenting the Israeli regime’s killing of 77 Palestinian children in 2021 as part its campaign to halt the flow of massive American funds to support the occupying entity.

The two-minute film, produced by ‘If Americans Knew’ and posted on social media and the group's website, conveys the circumstance around which so many innocent Palestinian children have been killed by the Israeli occupation.

The film further details how much money the US government sends to the Israeli regime and the Palestinians as financial, military and humanitarian aid.

"During Fiscal Year 2020, the US is providing Israel with at least $10.5 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians," the organization declared.

The group has also called on US lawmakers to show the film during their meetings in different Congressional committees to educate people about the continuous Israeli atrocities and crimes against the Palestinian population.

The organization further asserted that the Israeli occupation authorities place between 500 and 700 Palestinian children before military courts annually, adding that since 2000, the Israeli occupation forces have killed nearly 2,200 Palestinian children.

According to the California-based organization, the Israeli regime kept 41 Palestinian children under administrative detention between October 2015 and October 2021, including four that are still enduring illegal detention until today.

This is while Defense for Children International has recently published a detailed report about the Israeli atrocities against Palestinian children in 2021.

It also confirmed that the Israeli occupation had killed 77 Palestinian children in 2021, with one more child being killed after the report was released.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club has also stated that since 2000, the Israeli occupation has detained more than 19,000 Palestinian children.
