Israeli settlers set fire to lands near Nablus

NABLUS, Thursday, August 13, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers set fire today to agricultural lands in the village of Asira al-Qibliya to the south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, local sources said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement and settlers' vandalism in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that extremist settlers set fire to a number of lands in the aforementioned village after its residents fought them back when they raided the eastern area.

He noted that clashes broke out between Israeli occupation soldiers and Palestinians youths following the arson attack, which resulted in some of the latter getting suffocated due to inhaling toxic gas thrown at them by the forces.

To be noted, Israeli settlers are notorious for the attacks against Palestinians and their property. Most of the attacks carried out by Israeli settlers often go unpunished.
