Abstract

Acts against civilian populations resulted in the hospitalization of 158 children during a 20-month period in Israel. Older children were more likely to be injured by explosions than by shooting and to be severely or critically injured. Multiple body regions were injured in 63%; although extremity, head/face, and torso injury predominated, death was usually due to massive brain injury.
