Deir Jarir residents are frustrated and tired of attacks from the militant Ofra Settlement. Once again, the settlers have struck a blow with the Israeli military not responding to the complaints of the villagers.
Last Friday our team monitored a non-violent demonstration by over 500 residents of the five communities near Ofra: Deir Jarir, ‘Ein Yaburd, Rammun, Silwad and At Tayba. The military fired cannisters of tear gas among the demonstrators to disperse them. We wondered what action the settlers might take.
This news article describes their actions yesterday, and gives a bit of the recent history of settler attacks in this region of the West Bank.
