HEBRON (Ma’an ) -- Israeli settlers on Tuesday attacked Palestinian homes in the Jabal Jalis area east of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, locals said.

Local sources told Ma’an that settlers from the illegal Givat Gal outpost opened live fire on homes in the village. No injuries were reported.

Attacks carried out by settlers on Palestinians in the occupied Palestinian territory are near-daily, and have increased in recent weeks after two settlers were killed near Nablus by suspected Palestinian gunmen on Oct 1.

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis living illegally in the occupied West Bank, and settlers often carry out attacks in the presence of armed Israeli forces.

Settlers clashed with Palestinians in Hebron on Sunday and Israeli forces reportedly intervened in the confrontation, shooting off tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinians. Several were injured with the rubber bullets, while others suffered from tear gas inhalation.

The day before, locals said that settlers attacked Palestinian homes in the Hebron-area village of Wad al-Hisn, spraying waste water and firing tear gas canisters while Israeli soldiers reportedly protected them.

According to the Palestinian Negotiation Affairs department, over 130 attacks were carried out by Israeli settlers in the first week of October.

So what? A Palestinan got on an Israeli passenger bus yesterday and started shooting unarmed civilian passengers. His friend started hacking people with an axe. This is the true face of Palestine - brutal, vicious, inhumane, spits on international law and should not be in the UN.

As with Arthur Topham from Canada publishing a version of Theodore Kaufman’s 1941 racist and genocidal diatribe “Germany Must Perish,” and changing all the mentions of “Germany” in the book to “Israel,” Brian Cohen’s quote should have read, “This is the true face of Israel - brutal, vicious, inhumane, spits on international law and should not be in the UN.”
