NABLUS, Wednesday, October 14, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today cut wodden electric poles using chainsaw in Jalud town, south of Nablus city, according to a local activist.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, confirmed that a group of settlers sneaked their way into the eastern part of the town, where they chopped down a number of wooden electric poles with chainsaws, causing power blackout in the area.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers' violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are almost 834,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
