Settlers throw stones, but the soldiers turn against the victims
Don`t Say We didn`t Know 550

Tue, 09 May 2017

On Saturday, April 29, 2017, 30 settler-colonists from Yitzhar descended upon the neighboring Palestinian village of `Urif and stoned houses on the edges of the village. Inhabitants attempted to chase their assailants away. Israeli soldiers who arrived did not prevent the harassment and arrested none of the attackers. They fired teargas and rubber coated ammunition at the villagers. The settler-colonists shattered house windows and wounded the owner. The assault on Saturday was not the first to take place, and is not likely to be last.


On Thursday, May 4, 2017, Israeli government agents escorted by police demolished a home east of Tel Sheva (in the Negev). At Umm Batin (near the Israeli neighborhood of Omer) they demolished a water reservoir and a fence.

Five families from Bat Sara`ia, near Tel Al Milh, were issued demolition orders for all their homes and summoned for police interrogation.
