On Thursday evening, illegal Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian homes in the Sheikh Jarah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank, wounding eighteen Palestinians before Israeli soldiers abducted seven.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics provided treatment to twenty Palestinians who the Israeli soldiers and colonizers injured.

The PRCS added that its medics provided the needed treatment to the wounded Palestinians and transferred four to a hospital in the occupied city.

The attack was led by Itamar Ben-Gvir, a Member Of the Knesset and leader of the fanatic far-right Otzma Yehudit Party, who also pointed his weapon at the Palestinians and threatened to shoot them in front of police and soldiers.

Instead of removing the assailing colonizers and the agent provocateur Ben Gvir, the soldiers attacked many Palestinians and abducted seven.

It is worth mentioning that dozens of families in the neighborhood face displacement from their homes for Israel’s illegal colonialist activities and are constantly subject to attack and serious violations by the soldiers and the colonizers.

Sheikh Jarrah remains the target of dangerously escalating Israeli policies aiming at demolishing homes and removing at least 75 Palestinian families from their homes in the neighborhood to replace them with illegal colonialist settlers.

West Bank Settler Accused of Terrorism After Attacking Palestinian in East Jerusalem

Imri Hoffman, a resident of Yitzhar, is accused of beating a resident of Sheikh Jarrah on his head with a pole during clashes in the neighborhood last month

The State Prosecutor’s Office filed an indictment on Monday against a Jewish settler for assaulting a Palestinian in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem about a month ago.

According to the indictment, 19-year-old Imri Hoffman of the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar, forcefully beat the Palestinian man with a pole.

The indictment filed in the Jerusalem District Court alleges that Hoffman committed an act of terror-motivated aggravated assault and as well as deliberately damaging a vehicle, for racist motives. The prosecution asked the court to order the detention of the accused until the conclusion of the legal proceedings against him.

The assault took place on October 13, when hundreds of Palestinians clashed with the security forces throughout East Jerusalem. Clashes erupted in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood between Palestinian residents and Jews, which included the throwing of stones and Molotov cocktails, and the security forces dispersed those involved with stun grenades and a water cannon.

Left-wing activists who were present at the site that evening claim that the clashes began after dozens of Jews arrived at the neighborhood and attacked the homes of Palestinians there. According to the indictment, dozens of young Jews, among them the accused, gathered in the neighborhood, most of them wearing masks and hoods, and some of them holding sticks. The young men went out in the direction of the home of the Palestinian who was attacked, Mohammed Zahran, 53, and a violent confrontation between them and young Palestinians ensued.

At one point Zahran, who didn’t participate in the clash, noticed damage caused to his car by Hoffman and others. Hoffman raised his hand at him in a threatening gesture and started to approach him, with almost 20 other young men behind him. At that point Zahran asked Hoffman why they had damaged his car, and in response Hoffman hit him hard on the head with a pole he was holding. From the force of the beating Zahran collapsed on the ground and sustained serious bruises and wounds to his head.

Only last week did the Jerusalem District Court lift the gag order on the story that Hoffman and another settler who were arrested about two weeks ago have been detained on suspicion of attacking a Palestinian. Earlier it was known that the two were suspected of a security offense. They were investigated by the Shin Bet security service and until last week were prevented from meeting with their lawyer. Zahran was hospitalized with a skull fracture.
