Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles in East Jerusalem | Maan News Agency

Settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles with rocks late Tuesday in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Tur, locals said.

Settlers from Beit Orot, in the Mount of Olives, damaged several vehicles in the area before a number of young Palestinians confronted them.

Israeli police officers who arrived on the scene arrested three Palestinians, including Amir and Ahmad Abu Sbeitan.

“This is systematic support by the occupation government of the settlers, and state terror aimed at evicting the indigenous residents in order to keep a firm grip on the city,” local al-Tur committee head Mufeed Abu Ghannam told Ma’an.

This is the fourth attack against Palestinians and their property by settlers from Beit Orot over the last five days, Abu Ghannam added.
