Wadi Hilwe explains the oppression of Silwan’s locals from the settlers and their guards, they keep attacking their children and spray them with gas, beat them in the streets, curse them, even a few were hit by their cars, and it always ends the same way, no charges are pressed against them because there aren’t enough evidences, in many cases the Palestinian who press the charges against the settler gets assaulted, these incidents happens more especially during the Jewish holidays.
Most of the children’s settlers carries gas sprayers, cameras and they walk in the streets while guarded by armed guards
