Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles with stones near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Dozens of Israeli settlers hurled stones Monday evening at Palestinian vehicles travelling on a main road near the Bethlehem-area village of Tuqu near the Israeli settlement of Teqoa.

Witnesses told Ma’an via telephone that settlers from Etzion, Teqoa and Noqedim settlements rallied near the main entrance to Teqoa in southeast Bethlehem and started to pelt Palestinian vehicles with stones.

Israeli police and military forces rushed to the scene to protect the settlers, according to the witnesses.

The road is used by Palestinians who travel between the West Bank districts of Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron, and it connects the Israeli settlement blocs of Gush Etzion, east Bethlehem settlements and Har Homa.
