Grief and punishment

The Stream speaks with Palestinians and Israelis following the deaths of three teenage settlers.

The bodies of three Israeli teens were discovered outside Hebron on Monday following a two week search. Although Hamas has neither confirmed nor denied involvement, later that night Israel carried out airstrikes in Gaza, the group's stronghold. The crackdown on Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza has many accusing Israel of ‘collective punishment’. So, what do Palestinians and Israelis on the ground think about the situation? We speak with both sides at 19:30 GMT.

Hazem Balousha @iHaZeMi
