A horde of Jewish settlers, some of them armed, stormed Kifl Haris town, north of Salfit in the West Bank, on Friday in an attempt to provoke the feelings of the Palestinian residents.
Eyewitnesses said that the settlers came to the town aboard a bus and performed rituals at historical sites, adding that they tried to provoke local citizens in order to stir up trouble leading them to use the guns they brought with them.
The village of Kifl Haris had been exposed to several assaults in 2016 by settlers and soldiers, who broke in aboard buses and sabotaged historical sites by spraying racist slurs against Arabs.
Kifl Haris is surrounded by the villages of Deir Istiya, Zeita, Jamma’in and Haris and inhabited by about 3,240 people.
Vast tracts of Kifl Haris land had been appropriated for the construction of Ariel settlement.
