Iran PressMiddle East: The Zionist occupier settlers, under the protection of Israeli police, attacked Palestinians’ homes in the Wadi al-Rababeh neighborhood in Silwan. They further vandalized a vehicle belonging to one of the residents.

Three Palestinian teenagers were injured in the attack and were transferred to the hospital for medical treatment. Israeli police also detained two youth.

“Settler violence and vandalism take place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. even sometimes soldiers take part in the assault; at other times, they stand idly by. The police make no substantial effort to investigate the incidents, nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real-time,” said the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem.
