Settlers attack vehicles in Hebron, cause damage

HEBRON, Sunday, August 29, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settler fanatics last night stormed Jaber neighborhood in the old city of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank, where they attacked nine Palestinian-owned vehicles parked on the sides of streets and caused damage to almost all of them.

Aref Jaber, a local anti-settlement activist, told WAFA that the rampaging settlers hurled stones at the vehicles and smashed their windshields. No injuries were reported.

The city of Hebron is home to roughly 160,000 Palestinians and about 800 notoriously aggressive Israeli settlers who live in colonial compounds in the heart of the city, heavily guarded by Israeli troops.

Israel has expelled the only international monitors protecting Hebron’s Palestinians from the 800 heavily guarded settlers, one of whom committed the 1994 massacre that triggered their deployment.

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