BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles, on late Saturday, at the Gush Etzion junction south of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank and near the Ras Karkar village, in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

According to local sources, more than 50 Israeli settlers gathered at the Gush Etzion junction and attacked Palestinian vehicles passing by, in addition to screaming curses and anti-Arab slogans at the drivers.

Meanwhile, near the Ras Karkar village, west of the Ramallah district, dozens of Israeli settlers repeatedly threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles.

Sources added that Israeli forces sealed off the main road and prevented passage in both directions as a result of the Israeli settler attack.

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.

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.
