Israeli settlers escalate attacks on civilians’ property

On Friday, 30 July, a group of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian fields in the town of Burin in the West Bank. They set the fields on fire and assaulted a number of citizens who attempted to defend their land. Hundreds of dunums (one dunum equals 1,000 square meters) of land near the Hawara military checkpoint were also set ablaze, destroying hundreds of olive trees.

The settlers launched their attack while the residents were attending Friday prayers. Meanwhile, the house of Ibrahim Issa continues to face repeated attacks by Israeli settlers who live on the mountain top surrounding the town, and have been trying for the last two years to prevent him from completing the construction of his home through various forms of intimidation. Residents confirm that the settlers are protected by the Occupation Forces which also attack the inhabitants of the town using sound and gas bombs against them causing extensive fires.

    Steve? Third photag down, the burned field and then a building and then the hand with canister? Ummm, what’s the ‘canister’? Incendiary devise of some nasty sort or another? The lettering on the canister is Hebrew? Correct? What does it read? Then there’s the kid holding two more canisters.
    Would I be correct to assume that these are more of those “special” gifts to Israel from the U.S.?
    Additionally, I apologize for the timing of the image I sent you. Really poor timing on my part. Poor taste? I am winging it here and sometimes well, an effort can cause more harm than good.

    Pretty sure it’s an incendiary devise …. cant read it as most of the letters are hidden…. but the word ‘volt’ appears.
    Not to worry about the image you sent….

    these are called mini-flash-bang tactical grenades. They would be used by special forces entering a room to clear the area by first stunning the occupants then firing upon them.

    I believe it’s because these Israeli settlers are NOT the children of Israel that they behave like animals… The good and authentic Jews and Muslims must come together with good people in general to stop these Israeli settler attrocities… its very true that if good people do nothing the bad ones run amok, just ike a overactive child desperately needs his parents to tell him where the lines are drawn.
