Jewish settlers vandalize Palestinian vehicles in northern West Bank village

 

NABLUS, Tuesday, November 12, 2019 (WAFA) - Israeli settlers today slashed tires of seven Palestinian–owned vehicles and spray–painted racist slogans in the village of Urif, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local official.

Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the settlements file in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that the settlers sneaked into the village, slashed tires of parked vehicles and spray–painted racists graffiti and slogans on some vehicles.

Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities. It includes arsons of property and mosques, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

Over 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
