Palestinians Riot in Silwan After Settlers Security Personnel kill Samir Solhan On the morning of Wednesday, September 22nd, settler security personnel stationed in the village of Silwan in East Jerusalem shot and killed Samir Solhan. Solhan, a father of four, was a well known figure in Silwan.

The Palestinian residents of Silwan rioted in the following days protesting the murder. Although the police readily accepted the Settlers Security Personnel version that he was in fear of his life, testimonies and video taken at the scene tell a different story.
