Israeli occupation: a nightmare from which there’s no waking up

The Israeli occupation is a constant, chilling presence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and among Palestinians living in Israel: children and adults are routinely abducted, Israeli housing is built on Palestinian land while Palestinian homes are demolished – just a few examples from one “average” day.

Israeli military admits: open-fire policy needlessly killed protestors

Israel admits that live fire against Palestinian protestors has at times caused death when only serious injury was intended.  Israeli snipers have killed 300 while gradually tweaking their limb-targeting approach. Now they “aim for the ankles,” likely only maiming the unarmed demonstrators. The Israeli Supreme Court has backed the lethal open-fire policy from day one.
