West Bank tragedies

Re the June 17 article Israel: Hamas is warned after abduction: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will strike hard against Hamas for kidnapping three teenagers while they were hitchhiking in the West Bank. Hitchhiking is not a safe form of transportation anywhere. Just a couple of days before these kidnappings, there were two Palestinian teenagers killed by Israeli soldiers just for walking in the West Bank close to the wall. The wall cameras proved they were just walking.

Where is the outrage for these two murders? There is none. It happens all the time. Soldiers kill Palestinian youths, and they do it with impunity. Very seldom do we hear about it.
