Groups of illegal Israeli colonialist settlers attacked, on Friday at dawn, many Palestinian homes and cars in several areas in Bethlehem governorate, south of occupied East Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Media sources said many colonists hurled stones at a home and a car, owned by Ahmad Abu Dayya, in the al-Manshiyya area, in Teqoua’ town, east of Bethlehem.

They added that the colonists also hurled stones at a home, owned by Fuad Najajra, in Nahhalin town, west of Bethlehem.

The colonists also gathered at many intersections and road in various parts of Bethlehem governorate, and hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles, in addition to obstructing traffic.

On Friday afternoon, the soldiers invaded Beit Fajjar town, south of Bethlehem, searched and ransacked several homes before abducting a young Palestinian man and confiscating his car.

It is worth mentioning that the army has been conducting massive invasions and violent searches of homes and property after the body of an Israeli soldier was found near Efrat colony, illegally built on Palestinian lands, south of Bethlehem.

After the soldier’s body was found, the army installed many roadblocks in the area, and imposed a strict siege on Beit Fajjar, before initiating extensive and very violent searches of homes and property and interrogated dozens of residents.

The soldiers also confiscated surveillance tapes and equipment from many homes and stores, after searching them.

The searches also targeted many Palestinian villages and communities in areas north of Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank.
