“Settlers carried out several attacks in Kafr Malik, most of them took place in Asour area,  Asour is known of its fertile soil and Kafr Malik people highly depend on agriculture for living. The fanatic troops set the crops on fire several times, in addition to grazing in agricultural lands and destroying the crops . people of Kafr Malik filed several complains to the Israeli police , but nothing was done to stop such attacks from occurring.”

Settlers’ break-ins and nightly attacks on Palestinian suburbs escalated quickly in the recent years. The attacks are covered and protected by the occupation army, they usually target mosques , cemeteries and even private properties, and the occupation forces provide coverage and facilitate their escape.
