On Tuesday afternoon around 3.30 pm Beit Sahour, the town of the shepherds’ field was once again subject to Israeli Military bombing of unarmed civilians. Two of the Israeli tanks guarded by three military jeeps entered area A (which is under Palestinian control) and fired several “rocket propelled grenade” in the east of Beit Sahour. As a result, 15 houses and many parked cars were hit y the bombs. Two of the bombed houses are completely destroyed. The other 13 have undergone serious damage such as broken windows, water tanks, and bullet holes all over the walls.
Even if the Israeli claim is true that Palestinian soldiers fired first, who gives them the right to bomb houses full of civilians, to destroy the shelter of a families? Who gives them the right to demolish houses merely because they imagine that the houses are used to shoot from?
We call upon all supporters of justice and equity to take quick action to stop the aggressive and unreasonable Israeli attacks against Palestinians.
One of the most damaged houses belong to a family who just left to the United States, running away from the danger of a life next to an Israeli Military camp located in the middle of a residential area. I believe that God is watching over them that he has giving them a new life by protecting them from being in the house at the time of the bombing.
Please see attached pictures, and pass them on.
