Israel’s military is ranked in the top 20 in the world with a budget of $17 billion, according to Business Insider. Palestine doesn’t have an army but very dedicated civilians. For people to say Israel has the right to defend itself against a country with no army, is raising many eyebrows among the Palestinian supporters.
