Salfit: 2000 zionist settlers storm shrines under protection of occupation army

Thousands of Jewish worshipers accompanied by Israeli soldiers stormed the town of Kifl Haris to the north of Salfit on Friday morning, locals said.

The occupation army forces set up control points and checkpoints at the entrances to the town in order to protect more than two thousand settlers who stormed Muslim shrines in the village, claiming that they are “Jewish shrines that belong to Jewish prophets.”

Kifl Haris mayor Issam Abu Yaqoub said the Israelis behaved provocatively during the break-ins, shouting at villagers and dancing in the streets.

Izzat Shuqour, Yaqoub’s deputy, added that the group of settlers posted stickers on Palestinian homes and public places in the village.
