Israeli settlers puncture, vandalize Palestinian vehicles

Aug. 2, 2018 2:33 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 3, 2018 11:44 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers punctured and vandalized some 10 Palestinian vehicles on Thursday in the Ein Yabrud village, east of the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces stormed the village escorting a number of Israeli settlers, who vandalized several Palestinian-owned vehicles and spray painted racist slogans on them.

The incident comes a few days following a similar attack in the village of al-Mughayyir, northeast of the Ramallah district, during which Israeli settlers vandalized Palestinian property by slashing tires of eight Palestinian vehicles and spraying racist, anti-Palestinian graffiti on the walls of Palestinian homes.

According to a report from Israeli NGO B'Tselem in April 2018 alone, 14 Israeli settler assaults were documented across the occupied West Bank.

Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have accused Israel of fostering a "culture of impunity" for Israelis committing violent acts against Palestinians.

Better known as "price tag" attacks, extremis Israeli settlers use violent acts of retribution on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and their outposts in the occupied West Bank.
