Extremist settlers attack Palestinian school & home in Burin as soldiers look on

2 Comments 13 December 2017

Rabbis for Human Rights call on the Israeli army to finally confront the phenomenon of soldiers standing idly by while Palestinian are brutally attacked, as documented once again today (December 13 2017) by RHR. As a further illustration of this inappropriate behavior, the soldiers today used tear gas against the Palestinians – the victims of the attack – rather than attempt to stop the perpetrators. Violent settlers cannot be above the law; not only are their actions immoral, they also contribute to the undermining of security in the area and thus endanger life.

Additional information:

Zakaria Sadeh, the field director of Rabbis for Human Rights, came to the scene and documented part of the incident after receiving reports of violence caused by extremist settlers. No significant injuries were reported. A number of children from the school reported feelings of distress and anxiety. Palestinian property and olive trees were also damaged.

The extreme right-wing publication HaKol HaYehudi claimed the attack came after Palestinians approached the Gilad road and the nearby Yitzhar junction in order to attack Israeli vehicles on the main road.

 

Haaretz: “Dozens of Israeli settlers throw rocks at Palestinian building, IDF soldiers stand by”

Times of Israel: “Settlers hurl stones at West Bank village in reported clash”

    Actually they provided a video proving that their account was true but of course you don’t care about truth or human rights. The lack of honesty in your reporting together with your lack of caring for human rights is why you will never be successful. You are just a bunch of corrupt anti smites. You have zero moral voice.
