On Sunday February 18, join the salon, “Also Happening: Oppression and Violence in the West Bank,” at 3:00pm ET.
With the world’s attention focused on Israel’s “War on Gaza” it is easy to overlook increased Israeli military actions and growing settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank. More than 700,000 Israeli settlers live in 279 illegal settlements across the occupied West Bank, including 14 in the occupied East Jerusalem. Since October 7, 2023, Israeli military and settler attacks have killed more than 320 Palestinians. Both the United States and the United Kingdom have announced visa bans on violent settlers due to this flare-up.
VFHL offers four short videos revealing what it’s like for Palestinians to live under occupation in the West Bank, the plight of families who have fled, the arguments of Israelis who want to empty this occupied land of Palestinians, and what the international community might do to stem the violence.
Jonathan Kuttab: Attorny, author, Exec. Dir. Friends of Sabeel North America
