    The outfit has outraged some people, who say it is inappropriate for children.
    Walmart has sparked controversy by offering an Israeli Army soldier’s outfit as a children’s Halloween costume.

    The controversial outfit — on sale at the reduced price of $27.44 — has outraged social media users.

    The costume, which features Hebrew writing, is similar to that worn by the Israeli Defence Force elite units and paratroopers.

    The sale of the outfit comes at a time of increased violence between Israel and Palestinians.

    On the company’s website, the item is listed for sale and reads, “The Israeli Soldier Costume for Kids includes product comes complete with: shirt, pants, belt and hat.

    “When Halloween time rolls around, make this item part of your child's complete ensemble.”

    But on Twitter, users were outraged that the controversial outfit was on sale.

    Susan John-Richards wrote: “Boycott Walmart, protect innocence.”

    More than 40 Palestinians have died in unrest in Israel and the Palestinian territories this month, reported the BBC.

    Nine Israelis have been killed and dozens have also been wounded in stabbings and gun attacks.

    In 2013, it was also one of several retailers to remove an Osama bin Laden-themed costume that caused outrage.

    Walmart have yet to formally respond.

    People aren't happy if they aren't offended. If you don't like it don't buy it isn't comprehensible to them.

    I find this highly offensive! I'm off to write a strongly-worded letter to my Congressman, that sammy - loving bastard!

    PS - Oh, it's a Pashtun costume, not Palestinian. That's much better.

    I never owned a gun in my life but Christ as a kid I had an arsenal of plastic guns that could take on any gook army. We really have lost our grip on our manhood

    Almost the same as during the US vs Mexico soccer match and all the native-born Mexicans in Calif were cheering for Mexico?

    I wonder if they sell toddler US army outfits in Israel...
