Violation details:

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020, settlers punctured the tires of eight vehicles and wrote anti-Arab racist slogans during an attack on the town of Al Lubban Al Sharqiya, south of Nablus.

The head of Al Lubban Al Sharqiya village Council, Mr. Yaqoub Owais, told the Land Research Center’s researcher the following:

In the early morning hours of Tuesday morning, a group of settlers infiltrated to the center of the village  on foot, coming from the “Eli” settlement, which is built on large parts of the village lands, and were seen by a number of village citizens who initially believed that they were members of the occupation army. The attackers punctured and tore down parked car tire, prompting the citizens to take to the streets, and then the attackers fled from the same road that they came from, towards the settlement of “Eli”. We conducted a tour in the village to inspect the damage caused by the colonialists, and it was found that they wrote racist slogans and damaged the tires of 8 cars belonging to each of the citizens: Mr. Faisal Iyad Owais, Mr. Jihad Faisal Awais, Mr. Murad Faisal Owais, Mr. Ziad Faisal Owais, Mr. Mahmoud Issa Owais, Mr. Muhammad Issa Owais, Mr. Faisal Walid Owais and Mr. Maarouf Walid Owais “.

It is worth noting that the activities of extremism and terrorism practiced by these gangs who call themselves “the hilltop youth” and the ” the price tag” gangs are mainly poured into the ideology that is fed into their minds by some extremist rabbis, as they receive their education in extremist schools that exist in some Colonies scattered in the West Bank.
