Settlers burn 5 cars in Ramallah village

Dec. 19, 2011 10:17 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 20, 2011 2:28 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Dozens of settlers raided a Ramallah village on Monday morning and set fire to five cars.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli military forces arrived in the village of Beitin and dispersed the settlers without arresting any of them.

Beitin is situated near the village of Burqa, which was attacked by settlers last week.

Jewish settlers on Thursday torched the Burqa village mosque and sprayed racist graffiti in Hebrew on its walls, witnesses said.

That attack came a day after Jewish extremists torched a 13th century mosque in Jerusalem, spraying "Death to the Arabs" and "Muhammad is a pig" on the building.

Settler attacks in the West Bank against Palestinians have increased by more than 50 percent this year, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Israeli settlers number 500,000 in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, living in Jewish-only communities that are illegal under international law.
