Some stunning footage just became available of a settler attacking a team of Peace Now activists who were surveying West Bank settlement construction.
The assault took place at the settlement of Dolev. The incident was captured on video and reported by Israel’s Channel 2 TV, whose news team was documenting Peace Now’s work, and was also assaulted.
This settler violence is inexcusable, heart wrenching, and, unfortunately, all too common. It undermines the possibilities for stability and peace. Settlers assault our volunteers because they know that Peace Now’s work has an impact. They know that Peace Now is the best resource for information about settlements and has reinforced President Obama’s firm hand to bring a stop to settlements.
