WEST BANK: ‘ JEWISH SETTLERS STONE CARS OF US DIPLOMATIC DELEGATION ‘

#AceWorldNews – WEST BANK:Jan.02:Jewish settlers threw stones at the cars of a US diplomatic delegation, which came to inspect suspected vandalism to nearby Palestinian-owned trees in the occupied West Bank, Reuters reports.

“Rocks were thrown at them by residents of Adei Ad. We are investigating. Arrests have yet to be made,” an Israeli police spokeswoman said.

The US delegation failed to coordinate its visit with the Israeli authorities, she added.

Most world powers regard the Israeli settlements in the West bank as illegal, with the US citing their growth among the reasons for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks being stalled.
