AL-KHALIL, PALESTINOW.COM – Dozens of Israeli occupation soldiers at daybreak Friday stormed several neighborhoods in the West Bank city of al-Khalil and deliberately spat at Palestinian houses’ doors and cars to intimidate the residents amid Coronavirus spread.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing Israeli soldiers intentionally and repeatedly spitting at cars, walls, and doorsteps.
After the Israeli soldiers withdrew, Palestinian workers rushed to sterilize the places which the soldiers spat at, fearing Coronavirus infection, especially with recent news that many Israeli soldiers have been diagnosed with the novel virus.
Despite the lockdown in the West Bank and Jerusalem due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights last week documented 97 Israeli violations against Palestinian citizens, including 59 home raids and 51 arrests.
At least 6 Palestinian children were detained last week with no safety measures taken to protect them against Coronavirus infection, according to the human rights center.
