Israel accused of targeted killing of civilians in West Bank| BBC News

Published

on



Four brothers killed earlier this month by an Israeli air strike in the occupied West Bank were Palestinian civilians who posed no threat to Israeli forces, witnesses have told the BBC.

Violence in the West Bank has been rising since the war began in Gaza. The United Nations says more than 300 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank by the Israeli army since the Hamas attacks on Israel three months ago.

The killing of the four brothers happened hours after a 19-year-old Israeli army officer during clashes with Palestinian groups in the West Bank city of Jenin.

    This is nothing but terrorism. It is surprising that America and the West do not explicitly evacuate this. Israel is behaving like every colonialist nation in history

    You have the audacity to try to portray the Palestinians as poor and sick and persecuted? They are the ones who are killing everybody around and keep standing they want to do it over and over and over again are you stupid, pure evil, or just blind? Either way the reporting" of the BBC is is overtly biassed and should be taken off the air! this is not news reporting, but VILE propaganda.

    Didn't BBC propagate a lie earlier that the Hamas Rocket that exploded in the hospital was an Israeli airstrike ?!! 🙂 BBC has no crediblity in reporting, it is nothing more than a propaganda tool like the CNN, MSNBC, and AL Jazeera

    Wait a second… isn't that what hamas did when they fired off 5000 missiles indiscriminately into israel- which started this latest fiasco??
    How quickly people forget what started this.

    So, you vote in a party that ran on exterminating the Jews, you celebrated on the streets when they fulfilled this promise, but, retaliation, that's the immoral act?

    Sorry words can’t describe how I feel😭😭 World leaders we can’t keep a blind eye. Israel is terrorizing the Palestinians in West Bank and stealing their land. They don’t have the licence to do what they want by killing innocent people. Send UN military forces in to protect these people. Israel has no rights it .Palestinians WestBank is their country. No occupation from Israel. Why is the IDF always there terrorizing the Palestinians 💭 why is Israel there💭why don’t you charge the settlers for trespassing and assault 💭

    We once again see how little Israel values human life, though that’s incorrect since they don’t view non Jews as humans to begin with.

    This is what the Tories support! It's gruesomely abhorrent and beyond words. Shame on you! The people of the UK would never support such atrocities! Not in our name! You don't represent us!!!
