When a Palestinian is killed, Israelis do not even care about the victim’s nationality
An article by Yaron Ben-David in Haaretz on March 9, 2017, reveals that when an Israeli civilian is killed in a clash, the Israeli government does not even bother to pay compensation to the families of the deceased.
According to Ben-Adon, the reasons for this lie in the fact that the Palestinian who was killed was not Palestinian, but Arab.
The article also reveals that the Israeli military does not care about how Palestinians die, but only about how their families are treated.
While the Israeli army has a policy of not paying for the death of civilians, it is not uncommon for Israeli military personnel to pay their respects to the dead.
In one incident, an Israeli soldier killed a Palestinian civilian who was standing near his vehicle in the vicinity of the border fence.
After the attack, the military did not even notify the family members of the killed Palestinian civilian.
This policy of ignoring the dead Palestinian civilian is contrary to international law.
Israel is one of the few countries in the world that does not recognize the state of Palestine as a state.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) has ruled that Israel is responsible for the killing of Palestinians.
Israel also denies that it carried out the attack.
As a result, Ben-Ami explains that while Israel will pay for the funeral, the families must pay for its expenses.
This policy of paying compensation to grieving families for the dead is unacceptable, especially since the Israeli public has no knowledge of the details of the circumstances of the victims.
Israelis have long been aware of the fact of civilian casualties in Gaza, especially from the Israeli Air Force and artillery shelling, which is not recognized by the International Criminal Day.
However, they are reluctant to speak out against this issue and instead blame Hamas for the deaths of Palestinian civilians.
Since the start of the Israeli offensive on Gaza in 2015, a series of attacks have taken place.
According to Ben -Ami, Israeli soldiers have killed more than 50 Palestinians, mostly civilians, since the beginning of the offensive.
Israel has killed over 2,000 Palestinians since the start, and has killed more civilians than any other country.
Since January, more than 500 Palestinians have been killed, most of them civilians, in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli military has claimed that it is responsible because of the rocket attacks by Hamas militants that have killed Israeli civilians, including children.
While some Palestinians believe that Israel has an obligation to protect civilians, the overwhelming majority of Palestinians do not feel that way.
According the UN, more Palestinians have died since the outbreak of the conflict in 2015 than have died in all the conflicts that Israel and the Palestinians have fought in the past five years.
This is despite the fact, that Israel killed over 5,400 Palestinians in 2015 alone.
The Israeli military also claims that it has no obligation to intervene in civilian areas in order to protect the civilian population, and thus it has not launched a single airstrike on Palestinian civilians during the current offensive.
This has also caused widespread outrage among Palestinians.
In addition to the Palestinian civilian casualties, Israeli forces have also killed over 600 Palestinians since April 1, when the Israeli assault began.
In addition to Israeli military losses, Israeli troops have also lost soldiers, as well as property.
Ben -Amie explains that despite the Israeli policy of treating civilians as enemies, the people of the Gaza strip are suffering because of it.
Many Palestinians feel that the military has killed civilians in order for the Israeli occupation to continue, and to punish Hamas for their actions.
In light of the recent escalation of violence, Israeli authorities are calling on the international community to condemn Israel’s actions.
The UN Security Council should condemn the Israeli actions and take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of the civilian populations of Gaza, including the right to life and security of civilians.
The UN Human Rights Council must condemn Israeli military actions and the use of disproportionate force.
It must call on Israel to immediately stop its indiscriminate attacks against Palestinian civilians and civilian objects, and stop its violations of international humanitarian law.
