Settlers vandalize property in Ramallah village

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Settlers vandalized Palestinian property in the Ramallah village of Sinjil on Wednesday, a local official told Ma'an.

A group of settlers from Givat Ariel outpost wrote "Palestinians should die," and "Stay away from our lands," on a wall in the village, Sinjil mayor Ayoub Swaied said.

Settlers also left an improvised explosive device made from chemicals under a car. A box containing ethylene, benzene and sulfur was found underneath a car in the village, Swaied added.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that "graffiti was discovered on the walls of a house in Sinjil and security forces are currently reviewing the incident."

Swaied called for an end to settler attacks.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is systematic in the West Bank.

Over 90 percent of villages which have experienced multiple attacks by settlers are under Israeli security control, the US-based Palestine Center says.

Local Palestinians only have the official protection of an army which they claim ignores settler violence.
