While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

The IDF found six Molotov cocktails near the West Bank settlement of Itamar on Sunday night, according to the IDF spokesperson's unit.

The discovery came after two Palestinians wearing IDF-style uniforms were seen near the settlement in the Samaria region of the West Bank on Sunday night, according to the IDF. It's presumed that they intended to enter the settlement but did not do so.

One of the suspects, who had binoculars but no weapons, was caught in the hills separating Itamar from the Palestinian village of Beit Faruk.

Troops were searching for the second suspect in the area of Beit Faruk.

As IDF troops entered Beit Faruk riots broke out in three different locations, with Palestinians throwing stones at soldiers.

The military said that the circumstances surrounding the incident are under investigation, including whether the suspects were caught trying to carry out a terror attack or if they had a criminal motive.
