Settlers Backed by Israeli Army Kill Palestinians in Occupied West Bank

HeadlineOct 12, 2023

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli settlers killed at least two Palestinians today in an attack on a funeral procession for four Palestinians killed one day earlier by masked settlers and Israeli soldiers. Israeli troops have placed the entire West Bank on lockdown and have killed at least 27 Palestinians since Saturday. Meanwhile, Israel’s far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir said his ministry purchased 10,000 assault rifles, plus helmets and body armor, to arm settler militias. Ben-Gvir was previously convicted of racist incitement against Arabs and supporting a terrorist group.
