The General Delegation of the PLO to the U.S. strongly condemns the raid by Israeli occupation forces and settlers on Qisra village, destroying public and private properties including electricity poles and several residents’ vehicles.

This continued pattern of provocation by Israeli occupation forces, as well as settlers’ violence against Palestinians, threaten the basic elements of Palestinian life and the credibility of human rights laws and regulation, especially in light of the deafening absence of international accountability for Israeli crimes.

The residents of Qisra sought to defend themselves nonviolently, but were provoked by the illegitimate actions of Israeli occupation forces and settlers.

The General Delegation of the PLO to the U.S. calls upon the international community to take practical steps ensuring an end to the threat of occupation forces and settlers to Palestinian life, guaranteeing the national aspiration and human rights of the Palestinian people.
