Former Mossad Chief Tamir Pardo Calls Israel an “Apartheid State”

HeadlineSep 12, 2023

In the occupied West Bank, hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets Sunday demanding justice for 16-year-old Milad al-Rai, who was killed by Israeli soldiers during a raid on a refugee camp near the city of Hebron a day earlier. Some 185 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank so far this year, including dozens of children and teens.

Last week, the former head of Israel’s spy service Mossad said Israel is imposing apartheid on Palestinians. Tamir Pardo told the Associated Press, “In a territory where two people are judged under two legal systems, that is an apartheid state.”
