Scores of settlers storm Islamic religious sites near Nablus

NABLUS, February 9, 2017 (WAFA) – For the second time in less than a week, scores of Israeli settlers stormed early Thursday Islamic religious sites in Awarta village, southeast of Nablus, said local security sources.

A number of buses packed with settlers stormed the village under Israeli forces’ protection and performed Jewish rituals at Islamic holy sites at the western side of the village.

During the raid, large Israeli troops were deployed inside the village and at its entrances.

Settlers repeatedly storm historical religious and archeological sites in the West Bank in an attempt to claim them  as Jewish.
