Israeli Settlers Attack Palestinian Vehicles in West Bank

B.M | DOP -

Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupation forces, attacked several Palestinian-owned vehicles in overnight raids in different areas of the occupied West Bank on Tuesday night, November 15.

Palestinian local sources reported that groups of extremist settlers gathered at the main crossroad in Kafr Laqif village, in the occupied West Bank city of Qalqilia.

The settlers stoned and caused damage to several Palestinian vehicles under the protection of Israeli occupation forces, the sources added.

In a related incident, Israeli settlers vandalise a number of Palestinian cars after raiding Yasouf and Hares villages. No injuries were reported. However, several cars sustained material damage.

The settlers’ attacks triggered confrontations in Hares village, during which Israeli occupation forces fired live bullets, rubber-coated metal munitions, and tear gas canisters.

In addition, Israeli terrorist settlers closed the Farsh Al-Hawa street in occupied Hebron and attacked the Palestinian vehicles, causing damage to several.

Moreover, a Palestinian driver was injured in the head after Israeli settlers attacked him inside his car in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus. He was transferred to the hospital as a result.

About 666,000 Israeli settlers are living illegally in 145 settlements and 140 outposts in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem. They regularly attack Palestinians and their properties.
