Israeli settlers vandalize Palestinian vehicles, houses west of Salfit

SALFIT, Monday, January 4, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today vandalized Palestinian vehicles and houses in Sarta village, west of the West Bank city of Salfit, according to local sources.

They confirmed that a group of settlers pelted several houses and vehicles with stones, and slashed the tires of several other vehicles in the village.

Meanwhile, another group of settlers threw rocks towards vehicles with Palestinian registration plates traveling along Road 465 near the Rawabi roundabout, to the north of the Ramallah city, causing damages to some of them.

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.
