JERUSALEM, Thursday, November 03, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today vandalized 23 Palestinian vehicles in Beit Iksa village, north of Jerusalem, according to local sources.
Rabi‘ Eid, a villager, said that a group of settlers sneaked their way into the village in the early morning hours, where they slashed the tires of 23 vehicles parked in al-Burj neighborhood and spray-painted hate graffiti and slogans calling for the forced expulsion of the villagers from their houses.
The vandals came from the nearby encroaching colonial settlement of Ramot.
Eid pointed that the neighborhood, like so many villages and towns in the West Bank, has been subjected to almost continual land theft and frequent settler attacks and isolated by Israeli colonial settlements, bypass roads, and military installations.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settler violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
