Daily Israeli violence went unmentioned. In the week ending April 3 alone, Israel conducted 65 West Bank incursions. It did so violently. Palestinian families were terrorized in the process. Two Anabta village youths were killed. Another was wounded.
Two children were injured during a Hebron incursion. Israeli forces used excessive force against peaceful West Bank protesters.
An Irish journalist was hurt in al-Nabi Saleh. A Palestinian was wounded in Kofur Qaddoum. A young boy was attacked in central Hebron. Forty-one Palestinians were abducted.
Dozens of new West Bank checkpoints were established. Palestinian fishermen were attacked at sea. Two airstrikes targeted Gaza.
Settlers attack Palestinians with impunity. They do so regularly. They commit vandalism and physical harm. Israeli security forces do nothing to stop them.
An East Jerusalemite was forced to demolish a room attached to his house. Palestinians aren't sure each day if they'll live, die, be abducted, injured or maimed for life.
Thousands of Palestinian political prisoners fill Israel's gulag. It's one of the world's worst. Arbitrary arrests are made daily. Torture and abuse follow.
Occupation harshness is policy. Freedom of movement, assembly and speech are denied. So are other fundamental human rights.
