Ongoing Attack by West Bank Settlers in Ramallah

Palestinian sources have reported that approximately 20-30 Israeli West Bank settlers have attacked groups of Palestinians in the West Bank town of Burkah, which lies just east of Ramallah.

The settlers reportedly opened fire upon the Palestinians who had been participating in celebrations for Eid, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Several properties have apparently been set on fire, and at least two Palestinians have been wounded in the attack.

The exact circumstances of the attack’s beginning are unclear. As of publication, the incident is reportedly still ongoing. As such, the situation is still developing and updates will be provided should they become available.
