Israel Urged to Stop Supporting Violent Jewish Settlers After Deadly West Bank Attacks

HeadlineApr 17, 2024

The United Nations Human Rights Office is calling on Israel to stop supporting violent Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank. In recent days settlers have killed at least three Palestinians and attacked a number of villages, burning dozens of homes to the ground. Human Rights Watch has accused Israeli military forces of either taking part in the attacks or failing to protect Palestinians from the settlers. Meanwhile, The Guardian has revealed Israel has been speeding up plans over the past six months to build thousands of housing units in new illegal settlements in East Jerusalem.
