Israeli settlers set fire to Palestinian agricultural land near Nablus

NABLUS, Tuesday, June 29, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today set fire to agricultural land belonging to Palestinian residents in the town of Burin to the south of Nablus, the occupied West Bank, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said settlers from a nearby illegal settlement set fire to tens of dunums of agricultural land at the southern part of Burin town.

Forces reportedly prevented residents and the civil defense crews from reaching the area to put out the fire.   

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