Outrage After Video Shows Israeli Bulldozer Removing Body of Killed Palestinian

HeadlineFeb 24, 2020

In Gaza, a Palestinian man was killed Sunday by Israeli forces, prompting international outcry after a video went viral showing an Israeli bulldozer scraping up his body. The incident was followed by rocket fire from Gaza and Israeli airstrikes. Elsewhere in the occupied Palestinian territories, Israeli police shot dead a man in East Jerusalem on Saturday. The police say he was attempting a stabbing.

Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders has said he will not attend the annual AIPAC conference again this year — that’s the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. He tweeted, “The Israeli people have the right to live in peace and security. So do the Palestinian people. I remain concerned about the platform AIPAC provides for leaders who express bigotry and oppose basic Palestinian rights. For that reason I will not attend their conference.”
