NABLUS, Sunday, January 17, 2021 (WAFA) – Hardcore Israeli settlers last night attacked with stones Palestinian vehicles driving at the main Nablus-Ramallah road, just near the village of Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya, according to local sources.
Colonial settlers from the illegal settlements of Eli and Shilo, built illegally on Palestinian land near the village, gathered at the main street and pelted stones at Palestinian vehicles driving at the road.
The attacks occurred in full sight of Israeli occupation soldiers who did nothing to stop the attack and rather set up two checkpoints and forced Palestinian drivers to use alternative routes.
There has been an increase in settler-related attacks against Palestinians and their properties during the past few week.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace 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.
