Two cases

(1) Today the so called Zada trial started. The charge is against 12 Arab-Israelis for lynching a Jewish-Israeli after the latter murdered 4 Arab-Israelis. They had him disarmed but instead of handing him over to the police they beat him to death. Forces on the spot could not prevent them from doing so. Well actually they could have, but then they would have needed to use their weapons against them, what they did not do.
Arab-Israeli are protesting against the trial against those who killed the murderer after he was overpowered calling it a “political trial”.

(2) The Israeli High Court ruled to retry an Israeli soldier for the shooting (a rubber bullet in the leg) of a handcuffed and blindfolded, arrested Palestinian on more severe charges. The High Court’s decision followed a petitition that was filed by the victim of the shooting and several Israeli human rights organisations.
