Israeli court blames Palestinian Authority for past attacks on Israeli soldiers

Jul 09,2019

The case is related to killing two heavily armed Israeli soldiers during clashes with Palestinian resistance in occupied West Bank.

An Israeli court has claimed Palestinian Authority and PLO responsible for resistance activities against Israelis and Jews during second Palestinian Intifada in the early 2000s.

The Jerusalem court stated that the Palestinian institutions and individual Palestinian leaders provided financial support to Palestinian resistance and incited violence.

Sources said that the ruling addressed 17 resistance actions, including one where two heavily armed Israeli soldiers were killed in 2000.

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, president of the advocacy group that filed the lawsuit, says she will seek over $250 million in damages from Palestinian tax funds and foreign bank accounts.

It is worth noting that Israeli occupation forces have killed tens of thousands of Palestinians and displaced hundreds of thousands since the 1940s, but none of the courts around the world dare to indict Israel.
