Jerusalem24 – Saturday night, a large group of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian properties in Occupied East Jerusalem. Reports were also received that they attacked the Abu Sneina trucks showroom, and even tried to burn a vehicle there.
The attack took place on Nablus Street, or Street No. 1 near the old American Consulate. The Palestinians residing there said that around 30 settlers attacked the neighborhood.
A resident of the neighborhood said, “the police are here 24 hours a day but were not here when the settlers arrived.”
“They damaged all the cars on the street,” he added while surveying the vehicles that were attacked.
Almost all of the vehicles that were parked on the street were damaged, with broken windshields that the settlers broke with stones.
The residents described that they went outside to see what was happening when they heard insults to Arabs and the smashing of vehicles, during which dozens of settlers fled from the place.
Residents explained that more than 15 vehicles had their windows smashed parked in a parking lot, and the police said that they would “only repair the vehicles.”
The attack was documented by security cameras on the street.
A lawyer in the neighborhood, wrote on social media that “these gangs operate in an organized manner under the eyes of the occupation police roaming the streets in large numbers and attacking everything that is Arab; and the police do not move a finger.”
He adds, “if an Arab child had done the same the occupation would have mobilized its forces and arrest him and his family.”
