JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Monday punctured the tires of 16 cars and a bus in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, local residents said.

Samir Shaloudi told Ma'an that residents woke up to find dozens of private vehicles and a bus vandalized.

Hebrew graffiti sprayed on the bus read: "Enough of assimilation" and "Arab labor = assimilation".

The cars belonged to the Badwai, Abu Khatir, Shaloudi, Awwad, Maragha, al-Razim, and Manasrah families.

Residents called the Israeli police, who arrived on the scene and opened an investigation.

Muhammad Qarain, who works for the Silwan-based Wadi Hilweh Information Center, said that the settlers came from an illegal outpost on the outskirts of the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood.

Settler attacks against Palestinians and their property are routine in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

In 2012, there were 353 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.

The Zionists are the neighbors from hell. Nobody in the world wanted them , so they imposed them on the Palestinians.

The most disgusting thing about all this,is that USG/EU/UN who're supposed to stand as protectors from autocracy,DO NOT stop Israeli Zionism from spreading,offensively,&without mercy,like a plague.Forget all the lunatic Dispensationalists,Dominionists etc.They will fade into dust anyway.But to have 85 Palestinian indigenous FAMILIES thrown out of Silwan just to make way for a Jewish biblical THEME PARK/museum,is CRIMINAL,in a pluralistic Holy Land,is criminal,literally!
