TUBAS, Friday, October 07, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian teenager sustained bruises last night in an attack by Israeli settlers on Palestinian Bedouins in the village of Ein el-Beida, to the east of Tubas in the northeast of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Aref Daraghmeh, a local activist, told WAFA that a group of rampaging Israeli settlers blocked the main entrance to the village and attacked residents and their belongings, including their tents. The attack resulted in the injury of a teenager, Ayham Adli Daraghmeh, 16, who was beaten up and bruised by the settlers.
The settlers also attacked and vandalized Palestinian-owned greenhouses near the village, the sources said.
Over the past week, there has been a serious increase in attacks by extremist Israeli settlers on defenceless Palestinian civilians across the occupied West Bank, including shutdown of roads, pelting vehicles with stones and physically attacking defenceless villagers and passers-by.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.
There are over 650,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law.
