Israel often relies on the lack of filmed evidence to claim 'neutralising' terrorists when its army shoots unarmed children. When they killed 16-year-old Abdulrahman Hasan Ahmad it was caught on CCTV, turning this claim on its head, writes Ben White.
Israel’s government is openly pursuing annexation of the occupied West Bank through settlement expansion, the bolstering of settler violence and an intensification of violence by its occupation forces, writes Ben White.
As diplomats & journalists focus on Israel’s settlement expansion in the West Bank, there’s less attention on an expansion of segregation & racialised planning in the Galilee as the Israeli government intensifies historical policy, writes Ben White.
For years, Israel has relied on its policy of 'targeted killings' to sanction extrajudicial killings and bombing of family homes in Gaza by deliberately misinterpreting international law to strip Palestinians of protections, writes Ben White.
Last year was the deadliest in decades for Palestinians. Since the start of 2023, 43 have already been killed by Israeli forces. But Israel continues to evade accountability by claiming that the majority were ‘terrorists’, writes Ben White.
