Last Friday, extremist settlers attacked Palestinians and Israeli activists, injuring at least six, in the West Bank town of Burin near Nablus. This is part of a disturbing trend of Jewish settlers committing violent attacks in the West Bank against Palestinians, Israeli civilians, and IDF soldiers. In this Israel Policy Briefing featuring Jacob Magid, former West Bank correspondent and current U.S. correspondent for The Times of Israel, we discuss the roots of this growing threat and how it impacts Israeli-Palestinian relations, interethnic tensions, and West Bank security.

If you would like to read the letter we wrote in partnership with ADL, Central Conference of American Rabbis, National Council of Jewish Women, Rabbinical Assembly, Union for Reform Judaism, and United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism to Israeli leadership this morning, condemning this violence and urging unequivocal action to confront this growing crisis, you can read it here.
