Settlers assault Palestinians’ vehicles near Tubas

TUBAS, Sunday, August 08, 2021 (WAFA) – Extremist Israeli settlers last night attacked vehicles of Palestinians as they passed through an Israeli military checkpoint near the village of Tayasir, east of Tubas town in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Muataz Besharat, a local anti-settlement activist, told WAFA that the settlers physically attacked the vehicles and smashed the windshields of two of them as they approached the checkpoint.

No injuries were reported.

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

Violence by settlers includes arsons of property, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
