Settlers attack homes, vehicles with stones south of Nablus

NABLUS, Friday, December 25, 2020 (WAFA) – Dozens of Israeli settlers protected by army last night attacked Palestinian vehicles driving at the main Nablus-Ramallah road, just near the village of Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya, according to local sources.

Rampaging settlers from the illegal settlements of Eli and Ma'ale Levona, built illegally near the village, gathered at the main street and pelted stones at Palestinian vehicles driving at the road.

The settlers also attempted to raid homes of Palestinian citizens at the outskirts of the village. In response, Palestinian residents gathered at the entrance to the village and burned empty tires to fend off the attack and prevent the settlers from going deep into the village.

The attacks occurred in full sight of Israeli occupation soldiers who did nothing to stop the attack, according to witnesses.

There has been an increase in settler-related attacks against Palestinians and their properties during the last week.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.

There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in Jewish-only colonial settlements across the West Bank in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention which expressly bans the relocation of the occupying nation's civilian population to the land of the occupied.
