Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles west of Ramallah

RAMALLAH, Extremist Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles with stones tonight in the area of Wadi ad-Delb, to the west of Ramallah in the central West Bank, causing damage to some of them, according to local sources.

Sameh Erman, a Palestinian driver, told WAFA he was surprised by a group of Israeli settlers blocking the road ahead of him and attacking his vehicle with stones, causing damage to his vehicle. Erman himself was miraculously not injured in the attack.

He said the attack shattered the front windshield of his vehicle and scattered glass fragments in the interior of the car, pointing out that the settlers were hiding behind cement cubes placed by the Israeli occupation forces on the road.

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

There are over 600,000 Israeli settlers illegally occupying portions of the West Bank in violation of international law and established norms prohibiting the relocation of the occupying power’s civil population to the land of the occupied.
