Dozens of Israeli settlers attack Palestinian vehicles near Tuqu

Jan. 11, 2019 2:51 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 12, 2019 5:10 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers hurled rocks at Palestinian vehicles, on Friday, near the Tuqu village, southeast of the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem.

According to local sources, more than 50 Israeli settlers surrounded the area and gathered at the northern entrance of the Tuqu village.

Sources added that the Israeli settlers hurled rocks at Palestinian vehicles causing severe material damages.

The majority of settler attacks committed against Palestinians are met with impunity, with Israelis rarely facing consequences for such attacks.

Only 1.9% of complaints submitted by Palestinians against Israeli settler attacks result in a conviction, the Israeli human rights group Yesh Din reported.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
