Al-Mughayir: Settlers enter village groves and attack families
On 29 March 2020, around 3:30 P.M., three families from the village of al-Mughayir met in a-Dhahrat, north of the village, to have a picnic in the olive groves. The settlement outpost of Adei Ad was built about five kilometers from there. Just after they parked and got out of their cars, the families saw seven settlers, armed with clubs and knives, coming towards them from the settlement.
Two of the families managed to flee in the tractor cart of a farmer who was passing by. The settlers started hurling stones at the car of the remaining family, Anwaar (27) and Munzar (34) Abu ‘Alia and their two children, while they were standing next to it. Anwaar, who is four months pregnant, fled on foot at her husband’s insistence. The settlers continued to hurl stones at the car, slashed its tires with knives and demanded the keys from Munzar. When he refused, they grabbed them by force. Abu ‘Alia and his two children fled the scene on foot, leaving car and mobile phone behind. The settlers started to chase them. Abu ‘Alia responded by throwing stones to fend them off and protect his children.
About 10 minutes later, village residents arrived after being notified by the families, and drove the settlers out by throwing stones at them.
Abu ‘Alia managed to haul his car away. The damage done was estimated at around 2,000 NIS (~560 USD).
