Director of Research, Lior Yavne, commented on Yesh Din's findings, saying :
"The numerous defects in MPCID investigations of offenses against Palestinians, and in the Military Advocate General Corps' supervision of the investigations, result in the closure of the vast majority of the files and a minimal number of indictments being served."
"This creates a feeling of lawlessness on the ground, which may be a central contributing factor in the rise in the number of killings over recent weeks."
Unaccountability is official Israeli policy. Few Palestinian complaints are addressed. Probes conducted are whitewashed. Militarized occupation denies justice. Israeli rules of engagement assure it.
On January 24, Haaretz headlined "The real rules of engagement in the West Bank," saying:
"Every soldier knows the protocol for opening fire, but the more powerful principle is that the enemy must be subdued."
So-called enemies are Palestinians wanting to live free on their own land in their own country. Israel calls them terrorists.
Occupied Palestine is a free-fire zone. No one's sure from day to day who'll live, die, be injured, arrested, or incarcerated in gulag hell.
Israeli soldiers are taught to be trigger-happy. Fire, ready, aim is policy. All Palestinians are suspects.
