Amnesty condemns Israel for 'reckless' Nakba Day killings

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4520417,00.html

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Amnesty International on Thursday condemned Israel's military forces for killing two Palestinian youths during a Nakba Day protest.

"Israeli forces have displayed continuing recklessness in their use of force against Palestinian protesters when they killed a young man and a teenager, and injured others, during a crackdown on demonstrations to commemorate the Nakba in the occupied West Bank today," a statement said.

"Israeli forces have repeatedly resorted to extreme violence to respond to Palestinian protests against Israelís occupation, discriminatory policies, confiscation of land and construction of unlawful settlements."

The international human rights group said that the use of "unnecessary and excessive force" against Palestinian protesters is unacceptable and must be stopped immediately.
