Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles in northern West Bank

NABLUS, Friday, April 23, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles travelling between the northern West Bank cities of Nablus and Jenin, according to an official.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that settlers hurled stones at vehicles with Palestinian registration plates near the entrance of the former colonial settlement outpost of Homesh, evacuated in 2005, smashing the windshields of some of them.

Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

It includes arsons of property and mosques, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only colonial settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
