Settlers attack Palestinian journalists’ vehicles covering protest in Masafer Yatta

HEBRON, Friday, May 13, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today attacked Palestinian journalists’ vehicles while covering a solidarity event organized to protest the Israeli authorities’ decision to demolish 12 villages in Masafer Yatta area, south of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank.

According to WAFA cameraman, Mashhoor al-Wahwah, a group of settlers attacked and destroyed the journalists’ vehicles while carrying out their duty in covering an event held in protest of the Israeli decision to demolish more than 12 villages in Masafer Yatta area.

The recent strongly-criticized Israeli High Court’s ruling upholding a decision to remove 12 Palestinian villages in Masafer Yatta and displace thousands of their Palestinian citizens in order to build illegal settlements comes at a time Palestinians mark the 74th anniversary of their Nakba when Israel was created in 1948 and more than 700,000 Palestinians were forced to leave their homes and land and become refugees.
