Some serious killing in Nablus

This being one of those periods of ‘calm’ when only Palestinians are being killed, you probably wouldn’t know that 11 Palestinians were killed in Nablus by the Israeli military in the course of a recent ‘operation’. And dozens of people injured along the wall as they try to protest against it. And the starvation in Gaza. And the humiliations of the checkpoints. Is Palestinians’ desperation really so difficult to understand?
