One week later, more attacks on Palestinian village Urif

0 Comments 30 April 2017

Yesterday (Saturday April 29 2017), extremist settlers attacked the Palestinian village of Urif in the northern West Bank. One Palestinian was wounded in the leg. The settlers claim their attack followed the intentional setting of a fire by Palestinians near the settlement. Whether this is true ot not, there is no justification for an random attack on the village. According to Palestinian residents’ claims, the military did not prevent a group of extremist settlers from descending into the village, which was apparently targeted for assault. The video footage below was filmed in Urif by resident Adal al-Amar.
