Gush Shalom mourns the unnecessary death of Staff Sergeant Amit Ben Yigal who fell in battle at the village of Ya’bad, where the State of Israel sent him to enforce occupation rule. Amit Ben Yigal joins a very long and painful line of young victims who were sacrificed by the State of Israel on the altar of a 53 years old occupation, on the altar of settlement expansion, on the altar of the annexation plans of the government which is to be inaugurated his week. Every minister and Knesset Member voting for annexation, for settlement expansion, for continued Israeli rule In the territory called in right-wing lingo “Judea and Samaria”, must know that this vote would doom more young people to shed their blood in vain. There is no other solution, no other way to end the bloodshed, but the end of the occupation, the removal of the Israeli Army from all territories occupied in 1967, and the signing of a peace agreement between the sovereign state of Israel and the sovereign state of Palestine.
