RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers attacked a vehicle belonging to the head of the Ramallah city police patrol with stones Friday evening in the occupied West Bank.

Major Saleh Barahmeh was driving in the Uyoun al-Haramiyeh area between the West Bank districts of Ramallah and Nablus, accompanied by the lieutenant of the Palestinian police, Barahmeh told Ma'an Saturday.

The settlers “showered” the vehicle with rocks after hiding between trees near the road, he said. Barahmeh quickly drove away from the area until he reached Ramallah. Barahmeh said that his car was damaged during the incident.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), there were a total of 107 reported settler attacks on Palestinians and their properties in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 2016, with 46 attacks being reported since the start of 2017.

In March, Israeli NGO Yesh Din revealed that Israeli authorities served indictments in only 8.2 percent of cases of Israeli settlers committing anti-Palestinian crimes in the occupied West Bank in the past three years.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with announcements of settlement expansion earlier this year sparking condemnation from the international community.
