Soldiers Do Nothing to Stop Settlers From Throwing Rocks at Palestinians


The soldiers appear to attempt removing the settlers from the scene at one point, but none were detained. Second video shows soldier shooting Palestinian.

Settlers were filmed on Friday hurling rocks at Palestinians near Nablus in the West Bank. In the video, soldiers are seen standing idly by, doing nothing to prevent the attack.

The video shows the settlers, some of them masked, hurling rocks at Palestinians on hills near the village of Einabus. The footage shows a soldier standing near the group of settlers. At some point, soldiers can be seen trying to remove the settlers from the scene, but none were detained.

A second video of the incident taken by an activist with the anti-occupation Yesh Din group shows a soldier throwing what appears to be a stun grenade at the Palestinians, and another firing a round of unknown ammo at a Palestinian man. The Palestinians said one man was hurt and was taken to nearby hospital. The extent of his injuries was unclear.

The military said that a confrontation between Palestinians and settlers broke out after a group of Palestinians started walking toward the settlement of Yitzhar. Soldiers "tried to break them up and end the confrontation," said the army, adding that "the force responded with crowd dispersal measures and [fired] rubber-coated bullets at the rioters who were standing next" to the soldiers.

The military confirmed that one Palestinian was wounded in the incident and was evacuated from the scene.

This is the latest such incident to take place in the area, near Yitzhar, outpost of Givat Ronen and Palestinian villages of Einabus and Burin.

After similar incidents occurred in recent weeks, the military said it doesn't have the authority to arrest Israelis and added that police were called to deal with the settlers hurling rocks. However, no arrests have been made in any of the incidents.

In one incident that took place near Einabus last week, Israeli soldiers were filmed standing nearby trying to keep away some of the masked Israelis who were seen throwing rocks at a vehicle with a Palestinian driver inside that was paving a road in the area. From outside the frame of the video, filmed by Rabbis for Human Rights, the soldiers used crowd control measures, apparently on the Palestinians who the army said "clashed" with the settlers.

Transcription made from The Miko's Speeches

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
