As Palestinians fight corona, Israeli soldiers spit at vehicles and houses in West Bank

HEBRON, (WAFA) — Israeli soldiers today dumped contaminated trash and spat on doors of vehicles and homes in the southern West Bank town of Beit Ummar at a time the Palestinians are trying to fight the spread of the deadly coronavirus pandemic, according to local activist Muhammad Awad.

He told WAFA that a large army force broke into a section of Beit Ummar located near the illegal settlement bloc of Gush Etzion and threw glares contaminated with an unknown substance, as well as trash, needles and used gloves between village homes.

The soldiers also spat on the doors of vehicles and homes, and insulted residents using racist terms, he said, raising concern that the soldiers intentionally want to spread coronavirus among the Palestinian civilians of that area.

The soldiers did the same near the house of freed prisoner, Fida Ikhlil, in the town where they spat at and insulted people in that area.

After the soldiers had left the town, local volunteers of Beit Ummar Emergency Committee sterilized the two areas and destroyed and burnt all the materials that the soldiers had thrown.
