RAMALLAH, Sunday, March 19, 2023 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Sunday evening stoned a number of Palestinian vehicles at the entrance of Beitin, east of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to witnesses.
Eye witnesses told WAFA that fanatic settlers, and under heavy protection from the Israeli soldiers, stoned Palestinian-owned vehicles heading to the aforementioned village, shortly after the extremist settlers gathered at the village's entrance.
They added that this resulted in shattering the the windshield of several vehicles.
Extremist Israeli settlers’ violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers' violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
All settlements across the West Bank are illegal under international law, particularly article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which establishes that the occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.
