Arson and destruction in West Bank villages connected to Jewish settlers – sources

NABLUS, Thursday, July 23, 2020 (WAFA) – A couple of arson and destruction incidents in the occupied West Bank today were connected to Israeli settlers, according to a local source.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, said settlers attacked a quarry near the village of Jamaeen, north of Nablus, scrawled racist graffiti on its walls and set fire to a digger and a bulldozer.

He said the settlers, under protection from the Israeli occupation forces, also destroyed agricultural Palestinian land in the village of Asira al-Qibliya, south of Nablus.

Attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank are commonplace and are rarely prosecuted by the occupation authorities.
