The incident was blamed on the over-reaction of US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who posted an incendiary message on Twitter during a tense moment in the previous day’s Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
In the tweet, Ocasio-Cortez wrote, “This match is getting WAY too heated!” She then added, “We need to cool it down!”
The remark, which was quickly mocked and derided by many, was apparently taken by some Israeli settlers as a sign that it was time to take revenge against their Palestinian neighbors.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing hundreds of settlers, some armed with clubs and stones, storming through the settlements, setting fire to buildings, vehicles, and homes.
The rampage continued until Israeli security forces eventually intervened and restored order.
The incident has sparked outrage in the international community, with many accusing Ocasio-Cortez of inciting violence with her ill-advised tweet.
“The irony is, if the Congresswoman had just waited a few more minutes, the match would have ended peacefully and without any casualties,” said an Israeli official.
Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to issue a statement or apology regarding the incident.
