Israeli Settlers Sabotage Contents of Palestinian Mobile House near Jenin

Days of Palestine – Jenin

An Israeli settler sabotaged Thursday the contents of a mobile house in Imreiha village, southwest of the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, local sources said.

Raed Abu Baker, a local resident, said that the settler broke into the mobile room in the village, located to the southwest of Ya’bad, and tampered with its contents.

The vandal came from the illegal Israeli colonial settlement of Mavo Dotan.

Amjad Atatra, mayor of Ya‘bad, said that the same settler has seized a privately-owned plot of land near the settlement, frequently assaulted Palestinian properties, and keeps grazing his stock in their lands.

Meanwhile, a group of settlers barged their way into a residential complex in Al Mazra’a al Qibliya, west of Ramallah, assaulted 12 workers and some of the occupants, holding them for two hours before fleeing the scene.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

Settler violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, and attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
