JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)-- The Palestinian Authority appealed to the U.N. Security Council, calling for an end to Operation Brother's Keeper, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) operation combing the West Bank for the abducted teenagers that has lasted more than ten days.
A statement issued by the Palestinian leadership and published on the official WAFA news agency said the PA would seek international help to lift Israel’s 10-day-old crackdown in the West Bank, launched after the kidnapping of three teenagers on June 12.
The Palestinian statement condemned "the brutal, open aggression and collective punishment carried out by the Israeli occupation forces all across the Palestinian territories," and said it "means that the Israeli government is pushing towards more tension and towards an 'outburst.'" -- Source
