Israeli settlers assault, injure Palestinians in Jerusalem City

Oct. 1, 2018 12:49 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 1, 2018 3:41 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Several Palestinians suffered injuries after being assaulted by dozens of Israeli settlers, on predawn Monday, in the central occupied West Bank city of Jerusalem.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that dozens of Israeli settlers stormed the al-Musrara Street, Damascus Gate, al-Wadi Street in Jerusalem City and began to physically and mentally assault Palestinian residents by repeatedly beating them and shouting curses at them.

Israeli settlers also damaged Palestinian-owned vehicles and a number of commercial shops.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said that its crews transferred several injured Palestinians to a hospital for medical treatment

PRCS confirmed that the injuries were a result of the assault.

Sources added that Israeli police sealed off the Damascus Gate and set up iron barriers on the streets leading up to it, in order to ease access for Israeli settlers to the area, which also led to more confrontations between residents and settlers.

The Israeli human rights group B'Tselem reported that "settler violence and vandalism takes place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. Sometimes soldiers take part in the assault; at other times, they stand idly by. The police makes no substantial effort to investigate the incidents, nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real time."
