Israeli soldiers ambushed three Palestinian teenagers with live ammunition, killing one, despite the fact that they posed no immediate threat. Neither the soldiers nor their commanders will face any charges.

A two-minute video manages to perfectly capture the day-to-day banality of living under a military regime. I was able to count 37 soldiers. At least 37. One after another, each with his own weapon and combat vest, they climb up to roof the Abu Haya family's home — located in the section of Hebron under direct Israeli military control. [tmwinpost] Why? It's unclear. They don't speak with the members of the family. Or rather, they don't explain.
