Press Release: State-Sponsored Israeli Settler Terrorism

21 June 2023 in 2023

Israel and its settler militias are burning Palestinian villages, terrorizing entire Palestinian communities, displacing Palestinian families, and stealing Palestinian land and killing children under the watch and protection of Israeli occupation forces.

The blood-letting scenes of Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupying forces, burning their way through Al Luban Al Sharqiya and Turmus Ayya is part and parcel of Israel’s settler-colonial regime and ever concerted drive to cleanse Palestine of its people.

This Israeli settler terrorism is State-sponsored; it is financially, diplomatically, and politically facilitated and supported by every branch of Israel's government and celebrated by Israeli officials.

This unaccountable settler terrorism is sustained by an ideology of national Jewish supremacy that guides the continuing illegal colonial occupation, oppression, and apartheid in Palestine. Only an end to Israel’s illegal occupation and dismantlement of its apartheid regime can guarantee the protection of the Palestinian people.

The Palestinian people are facing a serious and deadly threat to their very existence on their land. The Huwara pogrom is becoming a daily reality for tens of thousands of Palestinians who fear for their lives.

From Al Luban Al Sharqiya, to Turmus Ayya, to Burqa, Ein Samiya, and previously Khirbet Humsah, Ras Al-Teen, and Khan Al-Ahmar, Israel’s war crimes are escalating and perpetrated interchangeably by the occupation army and settler militias.

Empty condemnations and expressions of concerns will not protect the undefended Palestinian people from Israel's racial terrorism.

The United Nations Security Council, the Secretary-General, and responsible state actors have a duty to immediately act to provide protection for the Palestinian people. The international community must, without any delay, hold Israeli officials and terrorist settlers accountable for their crimes.
