MK Tibi: Settlers training dogs to attack Palestinians

March 11, 2013 9:54 A.M. (Updated: March 12, 2013 9:48 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Knesset member Ahmad Tibi on Monday alleged that settlers in the West Bank are training dogs to attack Palestinians.

Tibi told Ma'an that he obtained a videotape which shows settlers training dogs to attack Palestinians who say Allahu Akbar, or, 'God is Great'.

He described the practices as racist and contrary to international law.

In 2010, Tibi alleged that the Israeli military trains dogs to attack anyone saying Allahu Akbar.

The Israeli military denied the charges, telling Haaretz in a statement, "One of the canine unit's many capabilities is to train the dogs at locating the enemy when dressed both in uniform and as civilian. This is an ability that has proven itself in many cases."
