SALFIT (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army distributed leaflets, on Tuesday, threatening the residents of Deir Istiya village, west of the northern occupied West Bank district of Salfit, of collective punishments under the pretext that the residents carried out “terror attacks” against Israeli settlers in the area.

Residents of Deir Istiya told Ma'an that a large number of Israeli forces stormed the village during the night, firing tear-gas bombs and sound grenades throughout the village.

Sources added that Israeli forces distributed threatening leaflets in multiple areas across the village, such as residents' homes, mosques, shops, and hung them on the doors and walls.

Sources mentioned that the leaflets were distributed under the pretext that the village is a “terrorist area” and that the residents have allegedly carried out “terror attacks” against Israeli settlers.

Its is noteworthy that the Israeli army has failed to impose any penalties or collective punishment on Israeli settlers, who attack Palestinian vehicles with rocks or Molotov cocktails, as such attacks have increased towards Palestinian vehicles during the past few months.
