Israeli Settlers Attack Palestinian Citizens’ Tents in Northern Jordan Valley

S.K | DOP -

Israeli settlers attacked Wednesday evening, March 22, 2023 Palestinian citizens’ tents in Khirbet Al-Farsieh, in the northern Jordan Valley.

Human rights activist, Aref Daraghmeh, said that a group of Israeli settlers raided the tents of the two Palestinian brothers, Ali and Hussein Zuhdi, in the Al-Ghazal Spring area in Al-Farsiyya, and proceeded to attack Palestinian citizens and their property.

As the holy month of Ramadan is approaching, Israeli settlers’ violence has escalated since the beginning of 2023, that resulted in the rising of the Palestinian resistance in the occupied West Bank cities and the Gaza Strip.

About 700,000 Israeli settlers live currently in more than 200 settlements built on Palestinian land considered illegal under international law.

Palestinian figures showed that Israeli forces and settlers carried out about 700 attacks against Palestinian families and their properties in the occupied West Bank.

The attacks included assaulting Palestinians, uprooting trees, razing lands, seizing properties, burning and vandalizing vehicles, and closing roads.
