From the Israeli Channel 2 news report [Hebrew]:

“Two Israelis entered the Palestinian village of Qusra, east of the Tapuach settlement, on Friday May 12th. The two, who were initially suspected of being settlers who came in order to attack, were aided by Palestinian police. Rabbis for Human Rights helped ensure the safety of the two.

The leaders of the village coordinated the return of the two Israelis to the army. Rabbis for Human Rights field coordinator Zakaria Sadeh rushed to the scene to ensure the peaceful resolution of the incident. Rabbis for Human Rights stressed that the event was a result of high tensions due to an uptick of hate crimes and terrorism in the area, which has been directed also against the villagers in Qusra.”

RHR is committed to challenging the occupation, and in the meantime seeks to secure the human rights of all within the context of the current situation.
