SALFIT, Wednesday, August 24, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today vandalized Palestinian vehicles in Marda village, north of Salfit, according to a local official.

Head of Marda Village Council, Nasfat Khuffash, said that a group of settlers sneaked their way into the village, punctured the tires of four vehicles and scrawled anti-Palestinian hate graffiti on the external walls of a nearby house.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

Settler violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
