Across the settlements of Judea and Samaria, voices are claiming that security officials covered up the stone-throwing in order to prevent “price tag” actions by settlers on the same day the Palestinians were presenting their statehood bid at the United Nations.
Details of the incident began to emerge on Sunday, after the family of Palmer, 25, reached an agreement with the state to allow for blood samples to be taken from his body and that of Yonatan, in order to determine the cause of death.
|Israeli settlers carry the body of one-year-old Yonatan and his father Asher Palmer during their funeral in the West bank settlement of Kiryat Arba next to Hebron on September 25 2011. Asher and his son were killed in what was originally thought to have been a car accident a few days ago. Police have since discovered a large rock with signs of blood on it near the crash, and are now investigating the possibility that the crash may have been caused by a stone being thrown at the car.
