Israeli settlers arson Palestinian school in the Galilee

PNN/ Bethlehem/
A group of Israeli settlers on Saturday night have torched a Palestinian school in Tuba village in the Galilee area, inside the 1948 lands.

Locals said that the fire escalated at around 11 PM, when the firefighters rushed to the scene and put out the fire.

Israeli media said that the school was burned by the Pay The Price Israeli group which is accused of numerous fatal arson attacks on Palestinian families, churches, mosques and schools.

Three days ago,  the same group has been suspected of vandalizing the house of an Israeli atheist leader  with slogans from the old testament on the doors and walls. The threats also included a letter and knife planted by the entrance of the house.

Last Sunday as well, the group has sprayed slogans that call on slaughtering Christians, on the walls of an old monastery in Jerusalem. 

In July, they have torched the home of the Dawabsheh family overnight in Duma village near Nablus, killing 11-month-old baby Ali Dawabsheh and both his parents. Only one member of the family survived, Ahmad Dawabsheh (4), and he is still recovering in the ICU.

They are also suspected in the murder of Mohammad Abu Khdeir (16) whom they abducted and burned alive in July 2014.

According to Reuters,  there have been more than 43 similar attacks against churches, mosques and monasteries in Israeli-occupied land, the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem since 2009, and the number has been rising sharply since last year.

Israeli Occupation Authorities claim to start an investigation, but often fail to hold the terrorists accountable for their crimes, as in the Dawabsheh case, where Israel said that the evidence against the Jewish suspects was “not enough” to try them.

A report by the Israeli Yesh Din Human-Rights group found that in the past five years, only 3 percent of the criminal investigations launched by the Military Police Criminal Investigations Division into alleged offenses by Israeli soldiers against Palestinians resulted in the indictment of suspects.

The report said that “Israeli police closed 85.3 percent of investigations due to the failure to locate suspects or find sufficient evidence to indict suspects; only 1.9 percent of Palestinian complaints against Israeli civilian/settler attacks resulted in a conviction, and 7.4 percent of investigations generated indictments against suspects.”
