Israelis kill eight Palestinians in Beit Rim

By Ali Abunimah


Israeli troops have killed 8-10 people in the village of Beit Rim in the occupied West Bank, which remains totally sealed off. According to Al-Jazira, the occupation forces are still at work in the village. Many bodies have been seen lying in the olive groves and injured people have been lying for hours in the streets.

The occupation forces entered the village at 3.30 AM, according to Al-Jazeera, and at this time of writing, almost twelve hours later, they are there and still not allowing any one in or out , but the army has dumped the bodies of dead and injured people at the edge of the village.

I would like to ask everyone to consider calling the White House today to demand that the United States actually DO something to stop these massacres which are carried out with US weapons and US diplomatic cover. Israel is simply ignoring a US demand to stop, and as Israel's patron the US is responsible. The number is 202-456-1414.
