The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan has reported that the families found racist graffiti written in Hebrew on a number of walls, and on a bus.
The residents then realized that the settlers also punctured the tires of 30 cars, and a Palestinian public transportation bus, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported.
The Wadi Hilweh Center said that the vehicles belong to members of the families of ash-Shalloudy, Awwad, Maragha, Abu Khater, ar-Razem, Manasra and Badawi.
Wad Yasoul is surrounded by illegitimate Israeli settlements and settlement outposts.
Israeli settlers are responsible for hundreds of similar attacks against Palestinian cars, in addition to attacks against Palestinian homes and farmlands in different parts of occupied Jerusalem, and in the occupied West Bank.
The attacks include burning cars, burning and defacing several mosques, churches, Islamic and Christian graveyards, in addition to bulldozing and uprooting Palestinian farmlands and orchards, and flooding them with waste-water.
