Zionist Settlers Torch Palestinian Home in West Bank

Al-Manar | November 23, 2014

304810_345x230Zionist extremists firebombed a house in a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank early on Sunday.

The mayor of Khirbet Abu Falah, Masud Abu Mura, reported the attack, saying: “At 4:00 am (0200 GMT), settlers came and threw molotov cocktails at a house which partly burned down.”

Four women were inside the house at the time, but they all escaped unharmed, the mayor of the village which lies northeast of Ramallah said.

Near the house, the assailants scrawled “Death to Arabs” in Hebrew.

Mohammad Abdelkarim Hamayel, whose aunt and two female cousins live in the house, said the assailants were believed to be from the Shilo settlement, a few kilometers to the north of the village.

“In the middle of the night, my aunt woke up when she heard voices speaking Hebrew. Someone knocked on the door but she didn’t answer because she was afraid,” he told AFP.

“They threw a tear gas canister and several molotov cocktails at the balcony which caught fire.”

Israeli occupation police also confirmed the attack, with its spokesman Luba Samri saying: “It is a two-storey house and the fire caused major damage to the ground floor.”

On November 12, Zionist settlers also torched a mosque in the neighboring village of Al-Mughayir.
