Israeli settlers, mostly armed, regularly attack Palestinian villages and farms and set fire to their mosques, olive groves and other properties in the West Bank under the so-called price tag policy. However, the Tel Aviv regime rarely detains the assailants.”
On Saturday, Jihad Nawaj’a, the head of Susiya Village Council, said that around 13 Israeli settlers hurled bottles and stones at dozens of villagers, and assaulted several women and children.
Following the Saturday attack, a 40-year-old woman named Sameeha Nawaj’a and a 33-year-old man, Nasser Mohammad Nawaj’a, suffered injuries, medical sources said.
The settlers also attacked shepherds in the area.

The presence and continued expansion of Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine has created a major obstacle for the efforts to establish peace in the Middle East.
More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.
The United Nations and most countries regard the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured by Israel in a war in 1967 and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbids construction on occupied lands.
