Israeli Military Probing 15 Cases of Soldiers Ignoring Settler Attacks on Palestinians
Haaretz reported today that from the start of the second intifada in September 2000 through December 2011, the human rights group B'Tselem filed 57 complaints over soldiers who allegedly did not stop such violent attacks on Palestinians. Few appear to have been followed up. The latest was filed after a filmed incident on Saturday.
Saturday's filmed confrontation between the residents of Asira al-Qibliya and settlers from the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar is not the first incident in which Israel soldiers witnessed clashes between Palestinians and settlers but did not intervene.
