OCCUPIED JERUSALEM,  Dozens of savage Israeli settlers set fire to Palestinian homes in Al-Qurmi neighborhood in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday which led to the outbreak of clashes between the residents and the assailants.

Eyewitness said that dozens of settlers holding burning torches and escorted by Israel troops stormed all of a sudden the neighborhood and threatened the residents to burn down all houses over their heads if they did not leave the area.

The Palestinian residents tried to defend themselves in an attempt to protect their homes, but some of the settlers set some windows of the homes ablaze before fire trucks arrived one hour late to extinguish the fire.

Al-Qurmi neighborhood connects between the areas of Al-Saraya and Aqabat Al-Khalidiya inside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem and many settlement institutions have been trying for decades to lay their hands on the Palestinian real estate.

In another incident, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) burned hundreds of lash pastures in the foothills of Umm Al-Quba in the Jordan valley during a military drill in the area.
