SALFIT, Thursday, February 14, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Thursday spray-painted racist slogans and slashed vehicles’ tires in the village of Iskaka, to the east of the city of Salfit in the north of the occupied West Bank, according to Abdel Qader Abu Hakmeh, head of village council.
He told WAFA that settlers raided the village during the night, slashed tires of 20 vehicles and spray-painted racist, anti-Palestinian and anti-Arab slogans on the cars, the wall of the village mosque and some homes.
Rights groups said settler violence against Palestinian civilians in the occupied West Bank has been on the rise in recent years due mainly to failure of Israeli government’s prosecution of the attackers.
In one instant last month, settlers murdered a Palestinian civilian during an attack at the village of al-Mughayyer, north of Ramallah. The murderer was not arrested.
