Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles near Bethlehem, Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers gathered on main roads near Bethlehem and Hebron on Saturday evening to protest against the recent disappearance of three teenage Israelis, hurling rocks at Palestinian vehicles.

Local Palestinian sources told Ma'an that dozens of settlers took to the streets on the main road between Hebron and Bethlehem which runs near Gush Etzion settlement bloc, gathering where a number of bus stops are congregated to throw rocks at passing Palestinians.

The protesters hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles which traveled on the main road, known as route 60. Although the attacks damaged some passing vehicles, no injuries were reported.

Also on Saturday, a group of Israeli settlers demonstrated near Haggay settlement south of Hebron and tried to attack Palestinian vehicles on the main road near al-Fawwar refugee camp.

The demonstrators chanted anti-Arab slogans, holding the Palestinians responsible for the recent disappearance of three Israeli teenagers and urging the Israeli government to take action against the Palestinians and impose a "heavy toll."

Earlier on Saturday, three Palestinians were injured near Nablus in similar attacks by settlers.
