Three children survive Israeli shooting attack near Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, Friday, September 10, 2021 (WAFA) – Three Palestinian children survived a shooting attack today which was carried out by an Israeli settler near the town of Al-Ram, northeast of occupied Jerusalem, witnesses said.

An Israeli settler armed with a rifle reportedly arrived by car at the northern entrance to the town, before he opened gunfire in the direction of three Palestinian children who were present at the site.

None of the children was injured.

Settler violence against Palestinian civilians is a frequent occurrence in the occupied West Bank, and is almost never prosecuted by the Israeli occupation authorities.

There are some 600,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial Israeli settlements across the occupied West Bank in violation of international law.
