Human Rights Advocates Call on US Congress to Stop Funding Israeli Occupation 

Af.M | DOP -

Palestinian human rights activists in the United States on Thursday, 2 March 2023 called on members of the Us Congress to stop supplying unrestricted funding to the Israeli occupation.

The Palestinian activists vocally opposed the US administration’s unlimited support of Israeli occupation and its racist government in favor of Israeli settlers’ brutal activities.

The advocates affirmed that it is time to end the US support for the Israeli apartheid regime based on the US law that prohibits support for human rights violators.

Israeli violence against Palestinian people and their properties sharply increased in recent months amid intensified Israeli deadly military raids in occupied Palestinian territories.

Earlier this week, Israeli settlers set dozens of Palestinian homes and cars on fire in Huwara, a town in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, in what appeared to be the worst outburst of settler violence in decades.

Local Palestinian sources reported that Israeli settlers torched some 30 Palestinian-owned homes and cars during the late-night rampage, which came a day after two settlers were killed.

Earlier this month, Israeli occupation claimed the lives of 11 Palestinians and injured more than 100 others in a deadly military raid into the old city of Nablus.

Palestinian officials said this was the deadliest start to a year there since 2000. 64 Palestinians have been killed over the last two months across the occupied Palestinian lands.
