West urges Israel to Halt Violence in Occupied territories 

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

“This rise in extremist settler violence committed against Palestinians is unacceptable,” more than a dozen countries have said in a joint statement published by the British government.

“Proactive steps must now be taken to ensure the effective and immediate protection of Palestinian communities. Israel’s failure to protect Palestinians and prosecute extremist settlers has led to an environment of near complete impunity in which settler violence has reached unprecedented levels,” said the statement.

It said that since the start of October, settlers have committed more than 343 violent attacks, killing 8 Palestinian civilians, injuring more than 83, and forcing 1,026 Palestinians from their homes.

The call for action came from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, the European Union, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Britain.
