International activists assaulted by extreme settlers in Al Khalil

March 9, 2012 | International Solidarity Movement, West Bank

2 international activists were assaulted late this morning by extreme Zionist setters in Al Khalil (Hebron). A female activist was assaulted by a male settler, after being punched in the face and having her camera stolen by this male settler.

Today’s attack comes following weeks of warning and aggression towards photojournalists and activists with cameras by Israeli military and police, which have stated to internationals that Israeli law forbids the photography of their operations, or rather, their breach of international law and human rights.

Activists have received these warnings for weeks now, and today’s attack comes parallel to the deliberate targeting by Israeli military of journalists and activists with cameras, by shooting tear gas canisters and bullets directly at them at most West Bank demonstrations.

About a month ago, Reporters without Borders published this statement regarding these warnings and threats.

While today’s attack is an escalation against internationals in the region, and while it is evident that the Israeli military and illegal settlers are collaborating in attacking Palestinians and internationals,  International Solidarity Movement will not desist from bringing proof of Israeli aggression through pictures, videos, and our continued reporting.

We thank the international solidarity community for its continued support in the face of Israeli Zionism, colonialism, discrimination, and militarization of Palestine.

  1. I think referring to these hate-driven paramilitary occupiers as ‘settlers’ is much to much of a benign term considering their actions and the racist mindset behind it!

    Let us for forget the t-shirts worn by the Israeli soldiers that graphically documents the genocidal desires of the Israelis with a depiction of a pregnant Palestinian woman in the cross-hairs centered on the womb, with the caption, ‘1 Shot 2 Kills’:

    Zionism is Nazism, a role-reversal that deserves the same contempt, defeat, and punishment!

  2. When entering occupied Palestinian territory expect to meet the following creatures: 1. Thief’s 2. Lowlifes 3. Assassins 4. Bigot’s 5. Imposters and Liars.

    To cheat a non-Jew is permitted and he is not permitted to return to him what he cheated him out of. They have weird Law’s haven’t they?
