Several illegal Israeli colonists infiltrated, on Monday at dawn, Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in the center of occupied East Jerusalem and punctured the tires of at least 30 Palestinian cars.

Locals said the colonists live in an illegal outpost in the Sammar area, right next to Sheikh Jarrah.

They added that the colonists slashed the tires of at least thirty Palestinian cars, parked in front or near many Palestinian homes.

The colonists also wrote racist anti-Palestinian and anti-Arab graffiti on many walls and cars and fled the scene.
