Hebron Settlers Plant Home-made Landmines

International Human Rights Observers (IHROs) accompanying shepherds from the Palestinian shepherding village of Qawaweis (in the southern Hebron district) were notified by one of the shepherds of the existence of two explosive devices placed under rocks on their land. During the documentation of the first device, described by one of the IHROs as “a used military flare, re-packed with explosives”, an IDF patrol arrived and were persuaded to remove both devices. Later in the afternoon, another IDF patrol confirmed that one device had been removed but they made no effort to locate or remove the second. IHROs and shepherds continue to search the area for further mines.

Of course, we can’t call these colonist as TERRORIST. Otherwise we will be called anti-Semitic!
