HEBRON, Thursday, December 15, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Wednesday evening tore down the metal roof covering of a fuel station in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to a WAFA correspondent.

He said that a group of settlers, under army protection, destroyed the metal roof covering of al-Ja‘bari fuel station, located at al-Shuhada Street.

The city of Hebron, which houses the Ibrahimi Mosque, is home to roughly 160,000 Palestinians and about 800 notoriously aggressive Israeli settlers who live in compounds heavily guarded by Israeli troops.

Israel has expelled the only international monitors protecting Hebron’s Palestinians from 800 heavily guarded settlers, one of whom committed the 1994 massacre that triggered their deployment.

Israeli settler violence against Palestinians is almost a routine reality in the occupied West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by the Israeli occupation authorities.

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

Over 800,000 Israeli settlers are living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
