Settlers vandalize 12 Palestinian cars in East Jerusalem

June 23, 2014 11:54 A.M. (Updated: June 25, 2014 4:59 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Settlers vandalized 12 Palestinian vehicles and a school bus in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina on Monday, locals said.

Owners of the vehicles told Ma'an that three masked settlers raided the al-Ashqariya neighborhood at 3 a.m. and punctured tires on 12 cars.

The settlers also sprayed "Death to Arabs" and "Revenge" on a school bus and another private vehicle.

Local resident Mahmoud Shanak told Ma'an that this is the first incident of its kind in al-Ashqariya.

The damaged vehicles belong to Riyad al-Halwani, Ramadan Bader, Mahmoud al-Shanak, Muhammad al-Shanak, Alaa al-Leftawi, Ulfat al-Bakri, Muhammad Hussein Barqan, Nisreen Hamad, Younes Ghazawi and Issa Jabarin.

Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
