Smoke bombs and live ammunition were fired. Overhead Israeli drones were ready to attack. Civilians are targeted, killed or wounded. Incursions like this happen regularly. Western officials are silent. These are war crimes. Responsible officials commit them with impunity.

Gaza's siege and blockade continues. Dozens of new West Bank checkpoints were established. About a dozen Palestinians were arrested at West Bank checkpoints, including four children and one woman.

Extremist settlers continue attacking Palestinians. They commit violence and vandalism with impunity. Other West Bank and East Jerusalem crimes against humanity were committed.

On Fridays, Bil'in village residents protest peacefully against Israel's apartheid wall construction. It's being built on stolen village land. An activist's sign reads, "The occupation will not remove us from our land."

On November 9, Israeli security forces attacked demonstrators. Tear gas and rubber bullets were used. Injuries were reported. An Italian activist was wounded. 

Many residents suffered from tear gas inhalation. The Popular Committee Against the Wall and settlements issued a statement, saying its struggle against occupation harshness will continue.

On November 8, Haaretz contributor Roman Bronfman said:

"The forces of democracy in Israel must now to unite to fight the enemy within. That enemy is our own government, as a whole and in its components." 

"Anti-democratic legislation, inflammatory rhetoric, concentrated and anti-social economics and teaching racist and xenophobic - all are dangers to peace within Israel."

Israeli Arabs and Jews for democracy must unite against dark internal forces threatening Israel, Palestine and regional security. 

Bronfman urges support for candidates supporting real democracy. Netanyahu/Lieberman and likeminded extremists threaten it and humanity.

What kind of country bombs and shells innocent civilians? Israel does it often and much more. What kind of nations endorse Israeli crimes of war and against humanity? They do it overtly, through silence, and by not acting to stop it as international law demands.

On November 9, an explosion on Gaza's Israeli border wounded four Israeli soldiers. Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine claimed responsibility. It followed earlier Israeli attacks.

On November 8, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian child. Multiple Israeli attacks occur before Palestinians respond. It's their legitimate self-defense right.

Israel calls it terrorism. IDF attacks followed. Israeli tanks shelled Gaza. Four Palestinians were killed. At least another 30 were wounded. Ten are in serious condition.
