Illegal Israeli Settlers attack a Palestinian village near Salfit
Al-Haq Human Rights Organization reported on Saturday at night that a group of illegal Israeli settlers invaded the village of Kafr Al-Deek, near the West Bank city of Salfit and attacked dozens of homes and vehicles.
Al-Haq added that Israeli occupation soldiers, present with the settlers, did not attempt to intervene and even provided the settlers with protection.
Instead of removing the settlers from the village, the soldiers imposed curfew barring the residents from leaving their homes and fired rounds of live ammunition at random.
Earlier on Saturday, the Israeli occupation army imposed curfew on the village, and apparently lifted it later on, but when the settlers attacked it, soldiers imposed curfew once again and thus punishing the victims instead of the attackers.
As dozens of residents challenged the curfew in order to protect their homes against the ongoing settlers attack, soldiers fired gas bombs, flares, rounds of live ammunition and rubber-coated metal bullets.
Initial reports revealed that at least one resident was apparently wounded and was moved to a local hospital.
