(Scroll down for video) Researchers have discovered Nazi used gas chambers, which was used to murder hundreds of thousands of Jews in Poland.

Researchers working at the site of a Nazi concentration camp in Sobibor, said that they have discovered the gas chambers, which the Nazis tried to destroy before leaving the site.

“When they closed it, German soldiers tried to remove all traces of the camp. The camp was closed after an uprising by prisoners on October 14, 1943. German forces destroyed the camp and built a road on top of the remains,” researchers said.

Archaeologists excavated under the road and found lines of bricks, which they believe were the walls of the gas chambers.

They have been able to establish how large the camp was, and the new information will help build a more accurate picture of how many people were killed in the camp.

Excavations revealed that there was a total of eight gas chambers. Yad Vashem estimates that 250,000 Jews were killed at the camp.

Archaeologists said that among the personal items that were found buried in the ground near the gas chambers was a wedding ring bearing the Hebrew inscription: "Behold, you are betrothed to me."

Starting this week, children who are above 14 years old, will no longer be eligible to be released on bail if they are accused of throwing rocks at Israeli civilians, prosecutors in Israel said.

As a result, the children will be incarcerated for up to two months, awaiting trial.

Under the new guidelines, children who are suspected of throwing stones or disturbing the peace in other ways, will be held until the end of their criminal proceedings.

The prosecutor's office said the policy does not differentiate between Muslims and Jews, but in the case of Jews, the courts are usually willing to entertain an alternative to jail.

Unlike the Jewish prisoners, Muslims often have no relatives outside Jerusalem, where they can be held under house arrest until the end of their processes.

According to attorney Mohammad Mahmoud, 58 Muslim children are currently under arrest for participating in riots. Among the 760 suspects taken into custody during recent riots, 260 were minors.

Most were accused of charges ranging from rioting to assaulting police officers and endangering lives.

An Israeli soldier spoke about the moment he witnessed a terrorist grabbing a woman to use as a human shield, the IDF Blog reported.

Sergeant Avi, the commander of the IDF Sniper Squad Paratroopers Brigade, entered Gaza with the purpose of dismantling Hamas’ terrorist infrastructure, including the vast underground tunnel network built to infiltrate and attack Israel.

“My soldiers and I were prepared, both mentally and physically. We knew why we were going in,” said Avi. “The company commander got on the radio and said, ‘pick up your bags’ and we started walking. It didn’t feel real until we passed the security fence. Even though nothing really changed, you could feel something different in the air. As the sun began to rise, we reached our first operational area. We knew that there were two tunnel shafts in the area, and we ended up finding two more – altogether four shafts,” Avi also said.

“On our second day inside Gaza, we moved to a different house. It is not safe to stay in the same place,” Avi continued. “We were taking turns keeping watch, and I decided to join the round so that my soldiers would have more time to rest. I had just finished my shift when I realized that the soldiers were tense. One of them heard a person speaking Arabic outside the house and spotted suspicious movement,” he said.

Realizing that there were people in the area, Avi and his soldiers heightened their awareness. “I joined my soldiers on the roof. After a few minutes, a 40-year-old man walked out of a house nearby, and then I saw that he was holding a woman, using her as a shield. That was the first time I saw with my own eyes someone using another person, a woman, as a shield. I’d seen videos at home, I’d heard about it on the news, and I had believed it, but now, I was seeing it with my own eyes. I can see very clearly that the woman doesn’t want to be there and he’s pulling her with him. Only after he finally let go of the woman could we neutralize him,” Avi concluded.
