The Israeli military says it found this photo in a home in Hebron.  

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- The Israel Defense Forces said its troops found a photograph Saturday of a baby posed with weapons during a military operation in Hebron.

The photograph, which was released Sunday, shows a child wearing a blue outfit and a baseball cap sitting with what the IDF said was a real handgun in its lap and its hand on a plastic rifle.

The IDF said no other incriminating evidence was found in the search of the house in the Abu Senina neighborhood.

A similar photo, showing a Palestinian toddler dressed as a suicide bomber, was discovered in a Palestinian militant's home last month, sparking outrage from Israeli officials.

Members of that toddler's family told Britain's Sky News that dressing the baby as a bomber was "just a joke."
