aspacpalestine.com – Gaza. Several violent marches have been launched by Israelis settlers residing in the occupied West Bank, blocking roads and attacking Palestinians and their property.
These marches took place Saturday, after three Palestinians were shot dead, two by Israeli forces and one by an Israeli settler.
Later that night, a Palestinian infiltrated the illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish and stabbed and killed three Israelis in their home, in an apparent reaction to Israeli attacks on Palestinians and violations at Al-Aqsa that occurred that day, according to a Facebook post by the assailant who was shot and detained.
Israeli news site Ynet reported that hundreds of Halamish residents set up a new outpost at a nearby junction, blocked the eastern road to the settlement to Palestinian movement, and demanded the Israeli government approve new constructions in the illegal settlement, as well as increase security measures.
East of Halamish in the northern Ramallah district, hundreds of Israeli settlers protested at the entrance to the Palestinian village of Beitin and near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ofra and Shilo, throwing rocks at Palestinian vehicles. Others gathered at the main road near the town of Silwad in the same vicinity.
Similar incidents took place in many Palestinian towns and villages Saturday, including Nablus and Hebron.
