Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles near Ramallah

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, February 16, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today attacked Palestinian vehicles near the village of Turmus Ayya, northeast of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to witnesses.

They told WAFA that a number of settlers hurled stones at vehicles with Palestinian registration plates near the illegal Israeli colonial settlement of Shilo, breaking their windshields, and punctured their tires.

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.
