JENIN, Thursday, November 19, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Thursday evening attacked a Palestinian house in Silat ad-Dhahr town, south of Jenin city, according to a municipal source.
Deputy mayor of the town Tayseer Abu-Dayak confirmed that a group of Israeli settlers attacked a house on the outskirts of the town, smashing the windows and shouting offensive and insulting slogans against the villagers.
The settlers also vandalized the homeowner’s vehicle, slashing its tires and smashing its windshields.
They sneaked into the village from the site of the site of the former colonial settlement of Homesh, evacuated in 2005.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers' violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law.
