Settlers attack olive pickers south of Nablus

NABLUS, October 10, 2016 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers on Monday attacked Palestinians harvesting olives near the village of Qaryout, south of Nablus, according to local sources.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that dozens of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian olive pickers and smashed the windshields of their vehicles.

The village is surrounded by a number of settlements housing the most extremist and violent settlers in the West Bank.

Violence by illegal Jewish settlers is commonplace. They have repeatedly attacked Palestinian property and worship places. Settlers’ violence includes property and mosque arson, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees and attacks on vulnerable homes among others.
