Extremist Israeli Jewish settlers has vandalised dozens of Palestinian vehicles in occupied West Bank, defiled Muslim cemetery in occupied Jerusalem.
“Israeli settlers vandalised about 30 vehicles at dawn today (Tuesday) in the villages of Al-Issawyia and Lobban near the West Bank city of Nablus,” Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official in charge of the Israeli settlement file, said.
“Vehicles had their tires slashed and their windshields smashed and were spray-painted with anti-Arab and anti-Muslim slogans,” Daghlas said.
“Settlers also tried to attack local mosques but were prevented from doing so by villagers,” he added. This came only one day after setting ablaze in a mosque and damaging its contents in a West Bank village.
Two Israeli settlers, in the early Monday morning hours, damaged a grave in Bab Al-Rahma historic Islamic cemetery, adjacent to the eastern wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, East Jerusalem, defiling it.
According to media reports, the settlers were screaming racist slogans, insults and hatred while they were attacking the grave.
So-called “price tag” vandalism is a strategy employed by extremist Jewish settlers by which they attack Palestinians and their property in ostensible “retaliation” for perceived threats to Israeli settlement expansion.
