Overview: Rocket fire from the Gaza Strip targeting Israel´s south
continues. This past week two rockets hit open areas in the western
Negev. In the Jordan Valley, a Palestinian with carrying seven
improvised IEDs was detained at a checkpoint in the Jordan Valley.
A group of Palestinian and left-wing European pro-Palestinian
activists biking through the Jordan Valley clashed with IDF soldiers.
A YouTube video showed an IDF officer striking a Danish activist with
his rifle butt. The officer was immediately relieved of his command,
until a full-scale investigation had been undertaken. The heads of
the Israeli government and army, including the prime minister,
strongly denounced the officer´s behavior.
The fly-in of anti-Israel activists intended as a provocation for the
State of Israel was conducted without exceptional incident. There
were limited public disturbances at the Ben-Gurion International
Airport. In several European countries (most prominently in France),
activists who had been prevented from boarding a plane to Israel held
protests. The number of activists who reached Ben-Gurion Airport was
small (78), far below the organizers´ expectations and declarations.
