IMEMC & Agencies: Local sources in the Nabi Samuel village, northwest of occupied East Jerusalem, have reported that a number of extremist Israeli settlers attacked and destroyed a car wash facility that belongs to a resident in the village. The attack is the fourth of its kind in two months.

Resident Anas Adel Obeid, 33, stated that his facility is the only source of livelihood to 12 family members, the Radio Bethlehem 2000 has reported.
Obeid said that during this attack, and all three previous attacks, the settlers damaged water tanks and threw them onto the ground, destroyed pipelines and other equipment.

“The nature of these attacks indicate that the assailants are watching us, as they wait until we leave the place and reach home before they carry their attacks out”, he said, “Several residents repeatedly saw the settlers observing the facility, and walking around it”.

“The village is subject to frequent attacks by extremist settlers’ groups, and repeated Israeli military invasions, it also includes the Samuel Tomb, and a synagogue”, Obeid added.

The village fell under Israeli military occupation in 1967 during the 6-day war when Israel occupied the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.

Approximately 300 Palestinians, holders of Palestinian ID cards, inhabit the village that became isolated from the West Bank after Israel built its illegal Annexation Wall several years ago. Palestinians who wish to enter the village are required to file for a permit at the Israeli District Coordination Office.
