Several thousand people marched in Sakhnin on Monday to protest the failure of the state to prosecute anyone for the death of 12 Israeli-Arabs – and one Palestinian - 12 years ago.

The march was held on the 12th anniversary of the riots that broke out in Arab cities and towns across Israel in October 2000, as an outgrowth of the start of the second intifada.

The protesters carried Palestinian flags and and black banners of mourning, as well as posters which read: “The blood of the martyrs is dear to us” and “We shall not forgive the killers.” Hundreds of Arab students stayed home from school on Monday to attend the March.
