For the past several weeks, Palestinians in the occupied territories have been confronting the Israeli occupation and its settlers as the latter kept violating the rights of Palestinians in light of its aspirations of taking over the Al-Quds neighborhood.
The violations were so severe that even the European Union called on "Israel" to stop settler violence in the neighborhood, warning against "irresponsible provocations" in what they described as a "sensitive area."
