RAMALLAH, Thursday, January 14, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers continued for the second week in a row their rampage against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank with attacks against their properties and on vehicles with Palestinian license plates driving on West Bank roads with total Israeli army apathy, according to officials and witnesses.
Wadi Abu Awwad, mayor of the town of Turmus Ayya, northeast of Ramallah, told WAFA that settlers sneaked into the outskirts of the village during the early morning hours and set two Palestinian-owned vehicles on fire while they smashed the windows of a third.
He said Israeli occupation forces came to the village and took the three cars away, accusing the Israelis of attempting to hide the settlers’ vandalism of Palestinian property.
Settlers also last night attacked Palestinian vehicles commuting on the main Ramallah-Nablus road, near Turmus Ayya, said witnesses.
The settlers threw rocks at the cars damaging many but without causing any bodily harm to their occupants.
Soldiers, who were in the area, did not intervene, said the witnesses.
