Extremist Jewish settlers, on Saturday evening, attacked Palestinian vehicles passing at a main road outside the illegal settlement of Efrat, near Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian security sources.

Dozens of settlers pelted stones at vehicles with Palestinian registration plates passing at the street, causing damage to some of them.

The assault was the latest in a spate of terror attacks by Jewish settlers across the occupied West Bank, following the fatal shooting of three Israeli soldiers near Ramallah, earlier on Thursday.

Most of the attacks occurred in full sight of Israeli military and security forces, according to witnesses and victims.

In a separate incident, a group of rampaging Jewish settlers also attacked Palestinian vehicles passing at a road outside the illegal settlement of Haggai, to the south of Hebron the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian security sources.

The settlers pelted stones at vehicles bearing Palestinian registration plates while passing at the street. There were no reports of casualties, however, according to WAFA.

In the meantime, Jewish settlers attempted to storm the village of Kafr Qaddoum, in the northern West Bank, before they were fended off by local Palestinian citizens.
