RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Dozens of Jewish settlers attacked the Sinjil village, north of Ramallah, under Israeli military protection and vandalized 26 Palestinian cars.
Ayub Suweid, the chairman of the Sinjil municipality, told Quds Press on Wednesday that the settlers were protected by Israeli occupation forces.
He said that they blasted and destroyed 26 Palestinian cars shortly after midnight.
He pointed out that his village is surrounded by four Jewish settlements, established on village land, and that settlers routinely attack the village and vandalize civilian property.
Suweid said that 70% of the village land falls within the C zone that according to the Oslo accords give fully control over it to the Israeli occupation authorities.
The municipality chairman said that he contacted human rights organizations and the Red Cross in addition to the Palestinian liaison office and complained about the repeated settlers’ attack but none could provide protection and the attacks continued.
