Israeli settlers vandalize Palestinian property in Salfit

Dec. 19, 2018 3:52 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 21, 2018 5:10 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers punctured tires of several Palestinian vehicles and sprayed racist graffiti in the Yasouf village in the northern occupied West Bank district of Salfit, late Tuesday.

Witnesses said that Israeli settlers sprayed graffiti calling for killing Arabs in Hebrew.

Head of the Yasouf village council, Nashat Abed al-Fattah, told Ma'an that Israeli settlers sprayed graffiti on the walls of homes and the Abu Bakr Mosque in the village.

Abed al-Fattah identified some of the punctured vehicles as belonging to locals Ahmad Yassin, Nathmi Yassin, Muhammad Hammoudeh, Mujahed Attyani, Samer Yassin, Samir Yassin, Attyani Attyani and Usama Yassin.

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, extremis 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.
Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
