Israeli settlers attack Land Settlement Authority staff east of Yatta

HEBRON, Saturday, July 24, 2021 (WAFA) – Settlers, backed by Israeli forces, attacked today staff of the Land Settlement Authority while working in Um al-Shaqhan area to the east of Yatta, south of the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, said a local activist.

Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, Fouad al-Amour told WAFA settlers from the nearby settlement of Avigal, built illegally on Um al-Shaqhan land, pelted the staff with rocks and confiscated their global positioning system (GPS) device.

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