Villagers in the West Bank Remain Vulnerable Despite Settler Attacks

In the aftermath of a settler attack on the village of Al-Mughayyir, residents express their vulnerability as they face threats from both settlers and the Israeli military.

Protection committees formed by citizens to defend against raids are met with repression, leading to numerous arrests. The recent violence in Duma, where settlers rampaged through the village, reopened old wounds from a 2015 tragedy when a settler extremist killed a Palestinian family. Despite lacking protection from either Palestinian security or the Israeli military, villagers remain resolute, vowing not to leave despite the threats they face.
