Another war is being waged on Palestinian soil

An article in El Pais recently attracted my full attention. Similar articles can be read every other day, but that´s precisely what disturbs me the most. People may not die, but individuals are deprived from their basic rights, and that´s also a kind of war for me: ongoing instability and fear haunting the legitimate inhabitants of a territory. And the situation is getting worse: clashes between Palestinians and settlers have increased in the West Bank in recent months, with a radical fringe of Israelis (settlers armed with guns and other kind of weapons!) attacking Palestinian property, including olive trees (according to OCHA, approximately 100,000 Palestinians are economically dependent on these trees olive) and cars. Couldn’t that also be considered by the ICC as a war crime? Food for thought…
