Ahead of Yom Kippur, Israel announced a 48-hour lockdown. The West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza were affected. Border crossings were closed. Normal activities were interrupted or suspended. Life in Occupied Palestine excludes normality.
On September 25, Haaretz headlined "Israel comes to a halt for Yom Kippur," saying:
Jews began observing the holiest day of the Hebrew calendar. Israeli security forces and emergency service were on high alert. Patrols were beefed up in cities, around synagogues, and other strategic locations.
IDF doublespeak said it would "continue to defend the citizens of Israel, whole taking into consideration the Palestinians' quality of life."
The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) reports weekly on how Israel shows "consideration (for) the Palestinians' quality of life."
For the week ending September 19, Israeli soldiers extrajudically murdered two Palestinians and wounded another. They confronted a peaceful West Bank protest violently.
A child and human rights defender were wounded. Dozens of demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation.
Twenty-three incursions into West Bank Palestinian communities occurred. Three more targeted Gaza. On average it was four a day. It was a light week. Others average seven or more daily.
