HEBRON (The Inside Palestine) – Israeli settlers today removed and robbed a Palestinian-owned tent in Khirbet Martaba, a village located east of the town of Yatta in the southern West Bank province of Hebron, according to local sources.
Fo’ad Emour, a local Palestinian official in charge of the Israeli settlement file in the area, told WAFA that a group of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Maon, nearby, stormed the village and robbed a tent belonging to Mahmoud Daies, a local Palestinian resident.
He added that the attacking settlers also vandalized the fence of a sheep barn belonging to another Palestinian from the village.
Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace across the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.
There are over 600,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law and consensus.
