Gaza, ALRAY - Knesset approved an allocation of NIS 2.5 million to protest Israeli settlers’ vehicles against Palestinian stone-throwers.

‘Israel Channel Seven’ said a Knesset subcommittee on Tuesday announced it obtained budgets from ‘Defense and Finance Ministries’ to protect private vehicles in occupied West Bank against ‘terror attacks’.

The funds shall be transferred in two weeks, the media outlet said, adding that this “will allow the issuing of a bid for reinforcement of vehicles against stonings,”

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank in 1967.

Settlers carry out almost on a daily basis attacks against West Bank Palestinians, ranging from tree uprootings, verbal insults, car run overs, among others.

Saleh Mlihat,70, was killed on Sunday, March 2, after being run over by an Israeli colonial settler near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Local sources said that a settler, driving too fast, ran over Saleh Mlihat throwing him to 80 meters away.
