Settlers torch 2 cars in Hebron village, spray graffiti

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers torched two Palestinian cars in a Hebron village on Thursday, locals said.

A group of settlers from Kiryat Arba set fire to the vehicles in Bani Naim, which belonged to brothers Abed al-Menm and Mohammad al-Salayma.

The settlers also sprayed threatening graffiti in the village reading "Good things are coming," apparently referring to future attacks being prepared by settlers, locals said.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank with impunity.

Annual figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law. The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
