Settler attempts to take down Palestinian flag, 2014
19 March 2014
On 8 Mar. 2014 B'Tselem volunteer Shadi Sidr filmed a settler climbing onto Sidr’s roof to take down a Palestinian flag. Caught in barbed wire, the settler said the roof is part of the Land of Israel, making him the rightful owner of Sidr's roof. A soldier came by and told Sidr to take down the flag. B'Tselem reiterates that soldiers must safeguard Palestinians, a protected population, and most certainly not assist trespassing settlers.
