Being a child while Palestinian is full of risks. Airstrikes, home (and school) invasions, home (and school) demolitions, inability to access medical care – these are just some of the dangers of being not-Jewish in a land under Israeli control.

Israel’s incessant human rights abuses against Palestinians included last week: abductions, violence, home demolition and invasion, and more. Mainstream media won’t tell these stories.
After Israeli soldiers violently broke into a Palestinian woman’s home, causing anxiety and damage, a woman suffered a heart attack and died. Such home invasions occur on a daily basis, and are in violation of international law.
“The overarching goal [of home invasions] was to instill a sense of persecution among the Palestinians.” “It’s a rolling trauma.” So say Israeli soldiers, as they look back with regret on the acts they carried out, night after night, at the behest of their state.
Their testimonies are compiled in a new human rights report from Breaking the Silence, Yesh Din and Physicians for Human Rights, “A Life Exposed: military invasions of Palestinian homes in the West Bank.”
