101 Palestinians killed without thought

Perhaps you are one of the many who have become inured to the killing of Palestinians by Israeli soldiers and police. Gov’t ministers have – they approve. These accounts, drawn up by one of Netanyahu’s hated NGOs – B’Tselem – is shocking in the numbers and circumstances of those shot, the lack of any justification or legal inquiry into the deaths.

Scissor women

Since October 2015 some Palestinians have been trying to kill Israeli soldiers. They lack lethal weapons. Women are notable in this effort, using scissors to try and stab Israeli soldiers. None has succeeded. Many have been shot in extra-judicial killings.

They shoot children, don’t they?

In less than a year the IDF has put into practice a new policy: take up position on a spot where Palestinian children are likely to throw stones at you and when they do shoot them dead. Gideon Levy and Alex Levac find out what’s been going on at Al Arroub refugee camp.

Israeli commandos burst into hospital to shoot dead a Palestinian

On Thursday November 12th a group of IDF commandos, in disguise, entered Hebron’s al-Ahli hospital. They kidnapped Azzam Shalaldeh who been shot by a settler – and shot dead his cousin Abdullah Shalaldeh who was visiting. Neither unarmed man could possibly have been imagined to be dangerous. Oxfam has led the condemnations of this extra-judicial murder.

NGOs: human rights help save human lives

‘Attacks against civilians undermine every moral, legal and human standard’ says B’Tselem in a sharp attack on the knife stabbings of Israeli civilians. Singly and jointly the NGOs active in Israel and the oPt condemn all killings and the shoot-to-kill practice adopted by Israeli border police and endorsed by politicians.

Jordanian judge shot dead by Israeli border guards

A Palestinian/Jordanian judge, travelling into the West Bank across the Allenby bridge, was shot dead by Israeli border guards. They say it was self-defence as he was running at them. Eye-witnesses have a different story. The 38-year old judge may have been angry or upset. He was unarmed. PM Netanyahu has apologised. This is the second incident this week at this crossing of guards taking the law into their own hands.
