Israel ends international observer mission in Hebron

International observers, who have documented division, displacement and violence in the city of Hebron in the occupied West Bank since 1997, are going home.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to extend the agreement for the monitoring mission, calling it an international force acting against Israel.

Netanyahu’s critics say he’s getting rid of the observers to try and win votes.
