Settler violence – you can experience a settler attack online!

The UN has catalogued 2,598 acts of violence by settlers against Palestinians in the last ten years.
Palestinians report the attacks to the police, but over 90% of the complaints lead to no charges and an infinitesimal number reach court.
Settler violence has been under-reported in UK media. In many villages Palestinians live under a reign of terror from residents of nearby settlements who are allowed to inflict violence on Palestinians and damage their property with impunity.
B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights organisation that focuses on the occupation, has made available videos of settlers attacking Palestinian villages – with soldiers looking on and in some cases actively helping them.
