Israeli settlers vandalize vehicles, spray racist graffiti near Salfit

Nov. 9, 2018 11:49 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 11, 2018 9:48 A.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers stormed the Kafr al-Dik village, west of the northern occupied West Bank district of Salfit, and punctured several Palestinian-owned vehicles on late Thursday.

Locals confirmed that dozens of Israeli settlers stormed the village and vandalized about several Palestinian-owned vehicles.

Sources added that Israeli settlers punctured the tires of the vehicles and spray painted racist, anti-Arab slogans on the neighborhood walls and on some of the vehicles.

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.

B'Tselem said that "Israel benefits from the repercussions, as settler violence has gradually dispossessed Palestinians of more and more areas in the West Bank, paving the way for a state takeover of land and resources. This occurs because Palestinians avoid entering areas in which they have been attacked, usually close to settlements."
