Israeli settlers puncture, vandalize vehicles in Palestinian village

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers punctured and vandalized about 15 Palestinian-owned vehicles on predawn Monday in the Sinjil village in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

Locals said that Israeli settlers stormed the village, punctured the tires of 15 vehicles and spray-painted racist, anti-Arab slogans on walls and several vehicles.

The slogans included threats against residents, some slogans read "Jews will not be silent," referring to the continued incursions of Israeli settlers into Palestinian towns and villages.

Despite Israeli settlers repeatedly carrying out raids, assaulting Palestinians and vandalizing vehicles, none of them was detained or even taken in for interrogation by Israeli forces.

Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have accused Israel of fostering a "culture of impunity" for Israelis committing violent acts against Palestinians.

Better known as "price tag" attacks, extremist Israeli settlers use violent acts of retribution on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and their outposts in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli NGO B'Tselem reported that Israeli settlers' vandalism in the occupied West Bank is a daily routine and is fully backed by Israeli authorities.
