Mondo Weiss is a known hate site, spreading lies and hate against Israel.

This site, like Electronic Intifada, are mostly often used by Islamist and Arab Nationalist PR workers.

Carrie does what she usually does.

Dimitri - didn't you know that Israel benefits from immunity and impunity - including for cluster munition & mines ? They scatter widely (see what they did in the last hours before the ceasefire came into rule in Southern Lebanon .......) and nobody gives a d***! Israel hasn't signed any relevant International convention or treaty that might oblige them to be more respectful of such bans. Of course, where the Occupied Territories are concerned, they do have a pretty good idea of where the mines are, & the expertise in demining ... but when asked for help in narrowing down the zone for clearing South Lebanon, apparently they had no idea ....

The trouble with things like mine fields, live-munition exercises within Palestine and UXO problems, etc is they are so frequent that they are not even "news" ..... except to those who care greatly about human rights ... of Palestinians as well as of others.

Thanks for posting, Carrie

There are statements about this well coming out in newsletters from Hebron area & peace activists ... the well was repaired with international NGO assistence, so they are concerned about the way that the mines prevent access

Israel Establishes New Landmine Field Near Hebron
Friday May 08, 2015 04:03

Coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Yatta Rateb Jabour stated Thursday that the Israeli army planted a new field of explosives, and fenced it, east of Yatta city, in the southern West Bank district of Hebron.

Jabour said the new landmine field was planted in the Um Lasfa and Khallet al-Mayya areas, close to the Abu Shaban Well that was recently repaired, and rehabilitated, by an international organization that also funded a new water tank structure for the use of the Palestinian villagers.

Jabour added that the soldiers fenced more than a quarter of a Dunam of Palestinian lands, and placed warning sings.

He strongly denounced the Israeli violation, and said that the practices of the army and its government aim at preventing any development projects and any demographic expansion of Palestinian communities.

Jabour also stated that there are many illegal Israeli colonies east of Yatta city, and that the army is constantly trying to control more Palestinian lands for military purposes, and for the expansion of settlements.

Zionist Bob Algeron:

'Carrie does what she usually does'.

YES, a true world from a defender of genocide against a minority in their own country, a supporter of Apartheid and occupation (anything left out ?)

Carrie does what she has to do like everyone with a heart full of compassion for the oppressed with no voice.
