Israeli Settlers Rampage Through Palestinian Village After Hamas Shooting

Some 400 Israelis descended on Turmus Ayya during the skirmish

Armed Israeli settlers rampaged through a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday afternoon, leaving at least one Palestinian dead and 12 injured a day after four Israelis were killed by Hamas gunmen near an Israeli settlement.

Some 400 Israelis from the West Bank settlement of Shilo descended on Turmus Ayya, a Palestinian village northeast of Ramallah. They torched dozens of homes, cars and trees and shot at residents, said Lafi Adeeb, the mayor of the village.

“Hell broke loose,” said Mohammad Awad Toroms, a 26-year-old resident of Turmus Ayya. Like many others in the small community, he is also a U.S. citizen.
