Umm al-Fahm (QNN)- Dozens of Palestinians in the city of Umm al-Fahm in 1948-occupied Palestine held a vigil on Thursday evening in solidarity with Burqa village, which has witnessed aggressive attacks by Israeli settlers.
The Palestinian protestors were chanting slogans and holding banners and flags of Palestine, expressing their solidarity with the residents of Burqa village.
Some of the banners read, “We stand in solidarity with our people in the Burqa village against settler violence,” “Fascism will not pass,” and “Settlers and settlements will not last.”
Nablus’s Burqa village has been under Israeli settlers violence and attacks for over two weeks. The settlers attacked dozens of Palestinian vehicles, burnt Palestinian-owned houses and assaulted residents of the Burqa village, leaving hundreds of Palestinian residents injured.
Thousands of settlers had been protesting and going in marches to the Burqa village, calling on the occupation government to let them return to the nearby pre-2005 Israeli settlement of Homesh.
