Settlers vandalize vehicles, scrawl hate graffiti near Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, Friday, March 19, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers dawn Friday vandalized Palestinian vehicles and scrawled hate graffiti in Beit Iksa village, northwest of Jerusalem, according to local sources.

They said that a group of settlers sneaked their way into the southern section of the village, where they set fire to two vehicles belonging to Hamdan Karshan and spray-painted racist graffiti.

Palestinian Civil Defense crews rushed to the scene and extinguished the fire which consumed completely the vehicles.

Sources added that Israeli forces raided the village following the settler attack, and interrogated a number of the villagers.

“Price tag” refers to an underground anti-Palestinian Israeli group that routinely attacks Palestinians in the occupied territories and inside Israel.

The Israeli government still refuses to label it as a terrorist organization and considers it only as group of vandals.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

Settler 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 across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
