The Maan News Agency reported that the settlers violently attacked the two Palestinian youth while they were crossing the street, punched and kicked them repeatedly, and the soldiers “intervened” to kidnap the victims instead of the attackers.

The soldiers went on to handcuff the two Palestinians and took them to an undisclosed location.

Also on Friday, extremist settlers cut at least 100 olive trees that belong to Palestinians residents in the Central West Bank district of Salfit.

Fundamentalist settlers groups have recently stepped up their assaults against the Palestinians, their orchards and lands and their property, and even went on to burn and deface several mosques, and a church.

The settlers also defaced property that belongs to activists of the Israeli Peace Now Movement.

Fundamentalist settlers even attacked Israeli military and police vehicles. They blame the Palestinians and Israeli peace groups to the evacuation of some random settlement outposts that were dismantled by the army.
