Israel seeks ethnic cleansing of Palestinians: Lawyer


Israel has been pursuing an ethnic cleansing agenda against the Palestinian population to push ahead with its expansionist policies in the occupied territories, an international lawyer tells Press TV.

In a Saturday interview, Stephen Lendman slammed the ongoing violence by Israeli settlers against Palestinians and Tel Aviv’s inaction toward the issue, adding, “They really want the Palestinians gone. They want to steal all valued parts of the occupied territories and they want Palestinians ethnically cleansed.”

“If they can make life miserable enough for them (Palestinians), they think maybe they have their best chance of succeeding in their objective. That’s what this is all about,” he added.

On Saturday, the Palestinian Authority (PA) Minister of Social Affairs Kamal al-Sharafi said Israeli forces have killed 1,520 Palestinian children and wounded 6,000 more since 2000.

He said more than 10,000 Palestinian kids have been arrested, 200 of whom are being held in Israeli detention centers.
