VIDEO: Palestinians and Israelis March Together for Peace
An Israeli settler shot and killed a Palestinian teenager Saturday morning in Hebron, in the occupied West Bank. As the death toll in the conflict rises, amid concerns over a third intifada, hundreds of Israelis and Palestinians marched through the streets of Jerusalem later that evening, chanting “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies.”
From AJ Plus:
The teenager was identified as Fadil Qawasmi, 18. His death came less than two hours before a 16-year-old Palestinian was shot dead in occupied East Jerusalem. According to Middle East Eye, “Qawasmi was the 38th Palestinian to be killed since the start of the month in Israel and occupied Palestinian territory, while seven Israelis have been killed by Palestinians in the same time period.”
