Al-Akhbar Management

On June 12 three Israeli settlers near the illegal settlement of Gush Etzion in the West Bank went missing. Since then, Israeli occupation forces have held the entire Palestinian population responsible for their disappearance, inflicting a series of brutal measures on Palestinians of all ages. Over 471 have been arrested and least five have been killed since Israel's "Brother's Keeper" operation began. In addition, countless homes have been raided and ransacked in the West Bank and a series of air strikes have targeted the besieged Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, over 241 Palestinian minors remain locked up in Israeli jails.
