Israeli soldiers detain BtS provocateurs in the Jewish settlement of Mitzpe Yair, near Hebron, August 31, 2018.
I am still trying to catch up with all the violence that has been taking place in the South Hebron Hills region of late. Last Wednesday, 10 November, there was intense violence near Mitzpe Yair that perhaps parallels, in a way, the the incident that occured on Simchat Torah this year (28 Sept 2021). In some ways, it was even worse than what happened on Simchat Torah. It did not, however, get plastered all over the media like the September incident did, and many readers probably never heard of it. In any case, we can examine the few articles and social media posts to understand what happened and, perhaps, why it was not more widely spread.
