Israeli West Bank attacks not 'terrorism'

Jewish settlers launched 400 attacks against Palestinian targets last year, according to the United Nations.

    The Israeli government has blocked legislation that would make Jewish attacks on Palestinian targets in the occupied West Bank "terrorist offences".

    Israeli forces have been seen protecting masked settlers and have joined them in assaults on Palestinian farmers.

    The United Nations reported that last year there were 400 Jewish settler attacks on Palestinian targets, including injuries to 93 people.
