Most Palestinians are shocked at the horrific attacks in the United States this week. While photos of celebrations have been taken in the streets of the West Bank, those few seconds in time hardly reflect the feelings of the majority, who are experiencing a sense of sorrow and solidarity.
If anything, Palestinians say they know how Americans must feel. This week's feature looks at Palestinian attempts to get the world to recognize Israel's racist practices and continuing military occupation.
While Israeli troops have redeployed to the edge of the Gaza Strip and from all or part of seven West Bank cities, the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory is by no means finished.
The JMCC seeks to keep a record of acts of Israeli violence (both military and civilian), and collective punishment. The following figures are for the week September 5 to 12 and were compiled from the Palestinian press and JMCC sources.
They should not be considered a complete list of the ongoing Israeli violations of human rights of Palestinians.
DEMOLISHED; three houses in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina on September 11.
KILLED: at least 12 Palestinians at the hands of Israeli occupation troops.
