RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Settlers handed out leaflets in a Palestinian village near Ramallah on Saturday threatening residents that their lives were at risk, villagers said.

Beitillu residents said settlers distributed the statement signed by “the Jews from the land of Israel” at the village entrance, where Israeli forces were also stationed.

The incident occurred as residents prepared to protest against the confiscation of village land to build settlements, which the international community recognizes as illegal.

Locals told Ma’an the demonstration was postponed due to the brutal killing of five Israelis, including three children, in a settlement in the Nablus district early Saturday morning.

Villagers explained that they feared a violent response from settlers.
