Video: Night raid in Bethlehem’s Aida Refugee Camp

NOVANEWS

The news is rightfully focused on Gaza right now, but that doesn’t mean life is quiet in the West Bank. The video above was shot by Kelly Lynn last night in Bethlehem’s Aida Refugee Camp. Here’s the description:

Israeli Defense Forces raid Bethlehem’s Aida Refugee Camp early in the morning on July 21st, 2014. Soldiers arrested 3 young men and assaulted several others. They confiscated footage from that night’s clashes in Bethlehem from journalist Mohammed Al Azza, briefly detained him and assaulted him and his two younger brothers. A father in the camp attempts twice to visit his brother’s home being raided by soldiers in an effort to see his son, and is denied violently by IDF. Screams can be heard in the streets as gunfire and sound bombs from the Israel military go off while youth throw stones toward the soldiers.

The events in this video will never make international media coverage, but this is what life under occupation looks like. It’s unjust, violent, and to my eyes, terrifying.
