The official Twitter account of Israel's mission to the UN in Geneva issued an official condemnation of the Palestinian delegation to the UN on Wednesday after an exhibition with the names and pictures of Palestinian children allegedly killed by IDF bombings also included a picture of the late Israeli boy Ido Avigal.
Avigal, z"l, was killed in 2021 during a barrage of rockets fired by Hamas into the city of Sderot, when a rocket hit the safe room where he was staying with his family. "Hamas killed Ido, but today the Palestinian delegation presented an exhibition that included Ido as a Palestinian child supposedly murdered by Israel in Gaza. This is despicable," the Israeli delegation wrote, and even demanded that the UN secretary-general in Geneva remove the exhibition, which spreads misinformation and is "part of a propaganda campaign." Ido's mother, Shani, responded cynically on her Twitter account to the incident, writing: "Grateful to those who make my voice heard."
This is Israeli kid Ido Avigal. He was 5 years old when he was killed in 2021, in his house in Sderot, during a major Hamas rockets barrage.
Hamas killed Ido.
But today, the Palestinian Delegation presented an exhibition @UNGeneva, which included Ido as a Palestinian child... pic.twitter.com/GZ0tK9X09D

Last September, a similar incident happened to Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi, who tweeted a picture of 36 children and babies who, he said, had been killed, and there too appeared a picture of Ido. Shani responded on Twitter: "Hey Ahmed, how are you, hearing? It's totally okay to take all kinds of children, put them in one picture and tell the world that the IDF killed them, but is there any way you take my child's picture off there? I'm pretty sure Hamas murdered him, and injured my daughter, my nephews, and me, too, but I'm not a girl, so be it. Oh yes, they shot at the house!"
