HEBRON, Saturday, December 19, 2020 (WAFA) – Dozens of hardcore, armed Israeli settlers accompanied by the occupation army attacked today homes of Palestinian citizens after raiding the neighborhood of Tel Rumeida in the city of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank, according to witnesses.
WAFA correspondent said the settlers pelted stones at the homes, shouted profanities and racist slogans at Palestinian citizens and threatened to evict them out of the neighborhood.
Israeli soldiers who were accompanying the settlers in the attack reportedly did nothing to stop it, and rather provided the settlers with protection.
As a matter of fact, settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention.
