The Israeli government, meanwhile, has revived the practice of punitive home demolitions, razing the homes of two suspects. This follows a massive raid on the West Bank and airstrikes on Gaza that have killed around 12 Palestinians over the past two weeks. In a statement, Amnesty International urged Israel to halt its crackdown, saying: “Justice will not be served by Israel seeking revenge by imposing collective punishment, or committing other violations of Palestinians’ rights.” Next week will mark the 10th anniversary of the International Court of Justice advisory ruling that said Israel’s separation wall and settlements in the occupied West Bank are illegal.
