NABLUS (Ma'an) -- An Israeli archeologist was killed on Thursday when a cave collapsed in Nablus during excavation work, local sources said.

Residents said that excavation work on the archeological site in Sebastiya, northwest of Nablus, started several days ago.

Palestinian ambulances arrived at the scene before Israeli medics tried to resuscitate the archeologist.

A Palestinian worker was also trapped under the debris but survived.

Sebastiya is home to 4,500 Palestinians and hosts major archeological sites, including ancient Roman ruins.

Most of the village and archeological sites are in Area C and under full Israeli control.

On Sunday, the Palestinian Ministry of condemned the Israeli archeological work in the area, noting that digs by occupation forces in the West Bank were illegal under international law and condemning the "theft" of Palestinian artifacts these digs often led to.

Archeology hmm?That reminds me,there's a couple more US fictional TV shows(NBC&Fox)to add to my BDS list.
a)'Dig'(filmed in Silwan where Zionist oppression,Jews-only apartheid,&collective punishment of non-Jews,is rife.And,
b)'Tyrant(made by same person-Raffe)filmed in Israel,at Kafr Saba near to the Teva complex(treating everything but equal freedoms).Easy BDS,never watch the channels anyway!"Archeology"is Zio-speak for erasing Palestine,in FACT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NjlNpggCo8

As an archaeologist, I find it a shame that 'archaeologists' resort to illegal activity. Archaeology should be in accordance with local laws. Archaeology should also remain neutral & never be used for any political or religious gain. UNESCO should be more involved with this area and not be afraid of Israel or any other country.

'...and condemning the "theft" of Palestinian artifacts these digs often led to...' Why should 'theft' be in quotes? It obviously IS theft if Israel takes artifacts from lands she doesn't own.
