Settlers’ attacks continue even with coronavirus

Occupied West Bank (QNN)- Inspite of the coronavirus lockdown, settlers’ attacks on Palestinian citizens and their property throughout the West Bank continue.

Hebron

In occupied Hebron, groups of illegal settlers from the settlement of Ramat Yishai attacked the “As Sumoud Wat Tahaddi” center.

Local sources said that armed settlers accompanied by Israeli soldiers attacked the human rights center and tried to damage its fence.

They verbally attacked the activists, who rushed to protect the center and documented the attack using their cameras and phones.

Qaryut

On Wednesday, a group of Israeli settlers set up a mobile house on Palestinian agricultural land in Qaryut in southern Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, a PA official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said settlers from the settlement of Shilo set up a mobile house in Ras Mweis in the village.

He added that settlers exploit the current condition and the global coronavirus crisis to fulfill their goals and create more settlement outposts.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers chopped off nearly 36 old olive trees in the village yesterday.

Jordan Valley

On Tuesday, members of the “Hilltop Youth” terrorist group, a group affiliated to the “Price tagging” terrorist organization, attacked Palestinian citizens and torched two vehicles near the 90 street in the Jordan Valley.

The Israeli occupation army had quarantined 20 members of the terrorist group, who were suspected to be positive for coronavirus, at a military facility in the attacked area. Furthermore, the army provided them with food and equipment before they left to attack the locals.
