Settlers attack vehicles with stones at Jenin-Nablus road

NABLUS, Friday, June 18, 2021 (WAFA) – Extremist Israeli settlers today attacked Palestinian vehicles travelling along the Jenin-Nablus road, just near the village of Silat Ad-Dahr town, south of Jenin city in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Ghassan Daghlas, a local activist, told WAFA that a group of settlers hurled stones and empty bottles at Palestinian vehicles travelling along the Nablus-Jenin road, also known as Road 60, causing damage to some vehicles. No injuries were reported.

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

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

There are over 500,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law.
