Jewish settlers belonging to the terror group known as “Youth of the Hills” – who were quarantined in an army base after they were suspected of contracting the coronavirus –  escaped from the quarantine this morning and attacked Palestinian civilians with stones and teargas, also setting cars on fire.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement that this is not the first attack by Jewish settlers against Palestinian civilians and their property in all of the occupied territories, but an extension of dozens of similar attacks.
