This information should not surprise the Israeli army. Just a month before the war, Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem released a report detailing acts of vandalism and looting committed by Israeli soldiers in different parts of the occupied West Bank.
Usually, when they raid the house, they come in, they turn everything upside down, throw everything that was in the cupboards on the floor – the food reserves are knocked over. There is destruction and vandalism. Many Palestinians complain that their money and jewelry are missing.
So it’s really not something new. It’s now on social media, it’s now very widespread and it’s probably increased a lot since October 7, simply because now when Israeli soldiers attack any Palestinian – regardless of who they are age, whatever his ideology, whether he has done something or not, it is in a logic of revenge, of collective punishment.
(All Palestinians) are responsible for the Hamas attack on October 7, and this in part for showing a complete lack of respect for the Palestinians, for their homes, for their property and for acting as an occupier who can do anything take it whenever he wants.
Can we expect that soldiers widely publicized on social networks will be the subject of an investigation or any sanction from the army? If you ask a Palestinian, they will probably tell you no, because this has been going on forever and they have filed complaints, but nothing has happened.
