Which are the top Israeli sweets?
In the early morning hours of August 17, a group of young men wearing black balaclavas and wearing hooded jackets walked up to a restaurant in the southern settlement of Beit El and demanded to know the name of the owner.
A man at the counter gave them a blank stare, said he didn’t know the owner, and returned to his car.
“I asked him, ‘Where are you from?’
He said, ‘I am from Tel Aviv,’ ” recalled Yair Harel, the owner of the popular Beit el restaurant, whose name the young men stole.
The men took off in a Mercedes Benz, then stopped near the Beit Shemesh neighborhood in the northern West Bank.
They ran into the nearby Israeli settlement of Silwan, where the young Israelis later crashed their car.
Harel’s son, Yehud, said the group of men shouted, “Get out of the country!
The Israelis are coming!”
Harel and his family were inside a restaurant, where a young woman with her son was working.
The young men came in a white car and sped away.
They shouted, “‘We’re coming to kill you!'”
“It was a clear signal that the Israeli government was ready to massacre Palestinians, to kill our people.
The Israeli authorities said, “We don’t care what you do, because we have the right to defend ourselves.”
For weeks, Harel had been living in fear that his neighborhood would become a war zone as Israeli forces launched an operation to capture and detain Palestinians, sometimes in a small village in the Negev Desert.
The residents were in the middle of a dispute over land that Israel claims for itself and another dispute over the separation barrier.
In recent weeks, Israeli forces have begun shooting at Palestinian children who try to cross the barrier, and they have killed a number of children trying to cross it.
At the Beith El restaurant, Yehrab and Harel were sitting around a small table.
The Israelis had arrived on a motorcycle, and the table was set on a wooden table.
Haela, who had been in a coma for months after being shot in the head, said she saw her husband, who was paralyzed from the waist down, lying on the table.
The next day, Yehya died. “
We told them that if they were to kill us, we would go and live with them,” Yehudo said.
The next day, Yehya died.
“They killed him in front of us,” Yehya’s cousin, Abu Nidal, told The Jerusalem Report from his home in the village of Kafr Darya.
“His father, who is still alive, called me, and he said, “‘Don’t forget your son, don’t forget the father.’
“On the table were his father’s two older brothers and a sister, all of whom were in their 20s.
Yehya had a sister named Amal, who also was in her 20s, and a nephew named Sami.
Yehlab, Yeya and Nidal said that when they went to see their father the next day and saw that he had been shot in his head, they fled.
They took him to the local hospital, where he died. “
My mother and I ran to the house where he was killed,” Yehlabi said.
They took him to the local hospital, where he died.
Yeha, Yehlabis and Abu Nidel said that Yehid was the only one in the family who was able to talk to his father.
“Our parents didn’t want to speak to their sons,” Yeha said.
Yehalit, the younger brother of Yehida, said that his mother had not been able to communicate with Yehoda, who they believe had been taken away to a secret location.
“She didn’t care if he was in the Israeli army, she just didn’t believe he would speak to her,” he said.
After the shooting, Yehalim, Yeha and Abu Nuid said, the men of Beith el and Silwan returned to their homes in the Beyt El neighborhood, where Yehaela was living.
The following day, the Israeli military ordered all Israeli citizens to stay home from work, schools and other public places until the next scheduled court hearing.
The government’s decision to close Beit Hanevi and Silwa was announced on August 20, and it took effect immediately.
Within hours, the Palestinian Authority and the United Nations condemned the closure, which left thousands of Palestinians without electricity, water, or medical care.
“This is a war crime and an act of war,” said Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, in a statement.
The announcement also highlighted a “systematic” campaign by Israeli forces to confiscate Palestinian land, which Palestinians have long accused Israel of
