Israeli Settlement Activities and Settlers’ Attacks against the Palestinian Civilians and their Property:

On 04 June 2018, a number of settlers living in settlement outposts in eastern Bethlehem opened fire in the air in the vicinity of Beit Ta’mor School known as “Challenge 5” School.  This occurred when a number of Palestinian workers were paving the road in the vicinity of the always-threatened school by the Israeli forces and settlers, who were provoked by this.  As a result, the settlers climbed a hill and opened fire in the air to scare the workers.
