Israeli Terrorists And Occupation Forces Burn House, Demolish Tent In South Hebron Hills

HEBRON HILLS, January 1, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers targeted a Palestinian home in the South Hebron hills village of Ad-Deirat, while Israeli forces demolished a tent in the village of Al-Mufaqarah, said an Operation Dove press release.

Witnesses said two settlers sprayed near the front door of a Palestinian’s house in the village of Ad-Deirat a sentence, in which only the word “revenge” is recognizable. The attack happened at around 3AM.

The settlers broke a window and threw a Molotov cocktail inside the house, damaging its furniture and the television. No injuries were reported among the home’s residents who were sleeping in another room.

The same day, Israeli forces demolished a tent and a cement base for a tent, both belonging to a Palestinian family, in the village of Al-Mufaqarah. The tent was used to store the sheep and wood clogs used by the family to heat during winter.

According to Operation Dove, which monitors Palestinians’ suffering in At-Tuwani and South Hebron hills since 2004, locals have been suffering from Israeli settlers’ since the 70s.

The settlers, occupying Palestinian-owned lands, deprive the Palestinians of their main livelihood, commit acts of violence, prevent Palestinians from having a normal life and restrict their freedom of movement, thus forcing them to leave the South Hebron hills area.

Ad-Deirat and al-Mufaqarah villages are located in Area C, under Israeli military and administrative control, which means that all construction activities must be approved by the Israeli administration.

Israel denies Palestinians the right to build on 70% of Area C, which is about 44% of all the West Bank. Within the remaining 30% a series of restrictions are usually applied in order to prevent Palestinians from obtaining building permits, according to United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, OCHA.

Israeli Terrorists Assault Palestinian Workers in Jerusalem, Israeli Occupation Turn Blind Eye to the Attack

JERUSALEM, November 23, 2014 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers on Sunday attacked a number of Palestinian workers in a vegetable market in West Jerusalem, while Israeli police turned a blind eye to the attack, according to witnesses.

The sources said a group of Jewish settlers attacked Palestinians working at a vegetable stand market with metal rods and wooden sticks, as well as sprayed pepper gas at them before an Israeli police unit arrived at the scene.

Despite the settlers’ attack, police detained some of the Palestinians who were attacked, while paying no effort to apprehend any of the settlers, the sources added, which is the case when settlers conduct similar attacks against Palestinians.
