In a post on an Arabic language Facebook page run by the Israeli Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, General Yoav Mordechai unveiled a page out of a Palestinian math teaching book for children. In the assignment shown on the page, the children are requested to “count shahids” [martyrs].

The post quoted the questions seen in the book: “The number of shahids in the first intifada - the stone intifada - reached 2,026 shahids and the number in the al-Aqsa intifada reached 5,050 shahids. What is the number of shahids in both intifadas?” According to the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, the question is taken from a book for 8-year-old children in the West Bank.
