Diplomati iz brojnih europskih zemalja i UN-a reagirali su gnjevno nakon što su izraelski vojnici intervenirali kako bi im spriječili da isporuče pomoć beduinima na Zapadnoj obali. Jedan francuski diplomata rekao je da je bio prisiljen na zemlju iz svog vozila.

Pomoć je dostavljana Khirbet al-Makhulu nakon što su kuće tamo srušene po nalogu Visokog suda. Glasnogovornik izraelskog parlamenta rekao je da pregledava jesu li diplomati zloupotrijebili svoje privilegije.

The homes in Khirbet al-Makhul were knocked down on Monday after Israel’s High Court ruled that they had been built without the correct permits. The diplomats said that as soon as they arrived, around a dozen Israeli army jeeps converged on them and ordered them not to unload their truck.

French diplomat Marion Fesneau-Castaing told Reuters news agency: “They dragged me out of the truck and forced me to the ground with no regard for my diplomatic immunity.  “This is how international law is being respected here.”

One European official described the Israeli actions as “shocking and outrageous”.

A spokesman for the British Consulate General in Jerusalem said it was “concerned at reports that the Israeli military authorities have prevented the affected community from receiving humanitarian assistance”.

The spokesman added: “We have repeatedly made clear to the Israeli authorities our concerns over such demolitions, which we view as causing unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians; as harmful to the peace process; and as contrary to international humanitarian law.”

UN Humanitarian Co-ordinator James Rawley said the Israeli authorities should “live up to their obligations as occupying power to protect those communities under their responsibility”.

The Haaretz news website quoted the Israel Defense Forces as saying that “dozens of Palestinians, foreign activists and diplomats” had tried to set up tents, which it called a “provocation”. Stones were thrown at security forces and stun grenades were fired to disperse the crowd, the IDF was quoted as saying.

Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Paul Hirschson told Agence France-Presse that Israel might lodge a complaint over Ms Fesneau-Castaing.”If she did participate then a formal complaint will be filed because that is not the way diplomats behave,” he said.

Prvi neposredni izraelsko-palestinski mirovni pregovori u tri godine održani su u Jeruzalemu prošlog mjeseca. Razgovori su propali u 2010 usred neslaganja oko pitanja židovskih naselja na Zapadnoj obali i Istočnom Jeruzalemu.

Israel has occupied the West Bank since the 1967 Middle East war – the talks are aimed at reaching a permanent peace settlement with the Palestinians.
