Clashes break out as settlers visit abandoned settlement near Jenin

JENIN, Thursday, December 10, 2020 (WAFA) – Dozens of Israeli settlers escorted by army today broke into the site of an abandoned Israeli settlement south of the city of Jenin, north of the occupied West Bank, provoking clashes with local Palestinian protesters from neighboring villages, local sources said.

The settlers performed rituals at the site and chanted anti-Arab and Muslim slogans during their provocative tour to Sa-Nur, an Israeli settlement which was abandoned by the Israeli occupation authorities as part of a partial disengagement plan in 2005.

Palestinian protesters from neighboring villages were quick to protest against the settlers' provocative tour, and clashes erupted with the occupation forces shortly afterwards. The occupation soldiers fired stun grenades and teargas canisters to disperse them, causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
