Date: 28/07/2014

Location: Beitello/ Ramallah governorate

Perpetrators: Nahliel colonists

Victims: Citizen Iyad Eid


At the early hours of Monday 28/07/2014, the first day of Eid al-Fitr (feast of breaking the fast), a group of right-wing Nahliel colonists sneaked into Beitllo  village and targeted a house located in the area of al-Thahrat, east of the village and 1km away from the aforementioned colony. Colonists also set fire to a 1997 Kia Lanos using diesel. In addition, colonists wrote racist slogans and drew David star on the walls of a house located next to the torched car. The slogan translates “the tax of throwing rocks”. The car and the house belong to Citizen Iyad Eid from Beitillu.

The village undergoes a renewed policy:

It is indicated that the policy of targeting cars is a renewed one conducted by greedy colonists within the Israeli agenda of ongoing violations against Palestinians. The town has been going under too many assaults such like attacks on cars. For example, on 30, 05/2014, a group of “price taggers” wrote hatred enticing slogans on the walls of Samer al-Jaber’s house and pierced the tires of his car. Despite that al-Jaber submitted a complaint for the Israeli Police; the police department did nothing in that regard.
