On Tuesday 25 November an Israeli bus driver plowed into 2 Palestinians on their way home from work near Jenin, murdering 21 year old Noor Hassan Naim Salim. On Wednesday 26 November mourners buried the soon-to-be-married Noor in Nablus’s Western cemetery.
Attacks on Palestinians have increased exponentially in the last year. Despite the young man being murdered it is unlikely the Israeli bus driver will be prosecuted, with the majority of crimes against Palestinians ignored. However, when Palestinians run over and kill Israelis it is automatically deemed a terrorist act and the driver is usually shot dead by Israeli Border Police.
