Israeli settlers attack Palestinian car near Ramallah

Aug. 3, 2015 7:19 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 3, 2015 7:19 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Monday attacked a Palestinian vehicle on the road between Ramallah and Nablus, witnesses said.

Israeli settlers threw rocks at a Palestinian taxi driven by Moussa Othman near a turn in the area named Oyoun al-Haramieh.

Othman said that he managed to keep control of his car and was able to escape with all passengers unscathed.

A number of similar incidents were reported in the same area, with no injuries reported.

Settler violence has come under international scrutiny in recent days following the killing of 18-month-old Ali Dawabsha in an arson attack carried out near Nablus.

The Israeli authorities have systematically failed to hold settlers accountable for violent attacks on Palestinians and their property.

Israeli rights group Yesh Din calculated in May that a Palestinian who files a complaint against Israeli settlers has a "1.9 percent chance that his or her complaint will lead to an effective investigation that results in the identification of a suspect and followed by indictment, trial and conviction."

Israeli settlers have carried out at least 120 attacks on Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank since the start of 2015, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

By the way is the 20 years jail sentence for Palestinians throwing rocks at Israeli forces or anyone apply to the settlers when they throwing rocks at Palestinians. I am throwing the question at Israel if they he care to respond.
