Israeli attacks on Palestinians are part of a campaign by the Tel Aviv regime to make the Palestinians abandon resistance or leave the occupied territories, says an international human rights lawyer.

“This [scuffle] has been going on weekly and of course this is all part of an Israeli campaign to make life that terrible for the Palestinians so that they want to give up or they want to leave,” Edward Corrigan told Press TV on Saturday.

“The situation is really terrible and we need to bring up as much attention to this to get the Israelis to stop,” he added.

The Canadian lawyer also said that such aggressive policies by Tel Aviv have made it further isolated in the intentional community.

“Israel is isolated. Certainly at the UN, the votes are, you know, almost like a 157 rate and it is only a few Western countries [like] Canada, the United States, [and] sometimes Australia that joined Israel… you have usually less than 10 people supporting Israel,” he said.

Scuffles recently broke out between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers in the occupied West bank village of Nabi Saleh after Palestinians demonstrated in the village, which is close to Ramallah. They were protesting against Israel’s land grab to expand the nearby Hallamish settlement.
