Settlers attack Palestinian homes, vehicles near Nablus

NABLUS, Friday, December 10, 2021 (WAFA) – Hardcore Israeli settlers today attacked with stones homes and vehicles of Palestinians in the villages of Madama and Burin, to the south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, resulting in minor damages to some of the vehicles but not injuries, according to local sources.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors Israeli violations in the area, told WAFA that colonial settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar, built illegally on Palestinian land near the villages, gathered at a section of Route 60 and pelted stones at Palestinian vehicles driving at the road.

No injuries were reported, although some of the vehicles attacked sustained minor damage.

There has been an increase in settler-related attacks against Palestinians and their properties during the past few months.

The Israeli settlement of Yitzhar is notorious for its hardcore Jewish settler community who in the past few years committed countless attacks against Palestinians and their property, including arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

Settler vandalism of Palestinian property in the occupied territories is almost a daily occurrence, and attacks by settlers are rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.
