A group of illegal extremist Israeli colonialist settlers invaded, Friday, Erfa’eyya area east of Yatta town, east of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, burnt hay bales, and wrote racist graffiti, in addition to hurling stones at Palestinian cars in the area and surrounding communities.

Rateb Jabour, the media coordinator of the Popular and National Committees in southern West Bank, said the colonists infiltrated into the area and burnt many hay bales, owned by the residents.

He added that the Israeli assailants also hurled stones, and empty bottles, at many Palestinian cars east of Hebron city, and a nearby road.

The colonists also wrote racist anti-Palestinian graffiti on many walls in Yatta, before fleeing the area and heading to their nearby illegal colonies and outposts.

In related news, the soldiers abducted Morad Eshteiwi, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies, in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, while crossing al-Karama Border Crossing between the West Bank and Jordan.

In addition, 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.

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.
