The US has imposed sanctions on Israeli settlers who attack Palestinians

Zvi Bar Yosef, Moshe Šarvit and Nerija Ben Pazi and the farms they operate are now unable to use the US financial system and American citizens cannot do business with them.

The US imposed sanctions on three extremist Israeli settlers in the West Bank on Thursday. The reason is harassment and attacks on Palestinians in an attempt to drive them from their homes and land. The report comes from the AP agency.

State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said in a statement that “there is no justification for extremist violence against civilians or driving families from their homes, regardless of national and ethnic origin, race or religion.”

The announcement comes amid growing tensions between President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His government has reacted disapprovingly to previous US sanctions on settlers.

The US imposed sanctions against four other settlers already at the beginning of February. According to Washington, the situation in the West Bank, especially the high level of violence by extremist settlers, the forced displacement of people and villages, and the destruction of property, has reached an intolerable level and seriously threatens peace, security and stability.
