Israeli settlers attack vehicles with stones near Nablus

NABLUS, Thursday, December 31, 2020 (WAFA) – Dozens of illegal Israeli settlers protected by army today attacked Palestinian vehicles at two locations to the south and north of Nablus city in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources

Fanatic settlers gathered at the main Nablus-Ramallah street near the village of Huwwara, south of the city, and attacked with stones Palestinian vehicles driving at the road. No injuries were reported.

Israeli occupation forces closed sections of the road during the attack as hundreds of rampaging hardcore settlers took to the road for a protest.

In the meantime, settlers attacked with stones vehicles passing at Nablus-Jenin road, just near the village of Burqa, causing partial damages to some of them but no injuries.

For two weeks now, there has been a spike in settler-related violence against Palestinians and their properties, with the Israeli military occupation authorities doing nothing to stop the attacks.

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.
