NABLUS, Friday, December 31, 2021 (WAFA) - Extremist Israeli settlers last night attacked with stones Palestinian vehicles travelling along the Jenin-Nablus road, near the village of Sebastia, in the occupied West Bank province of Nablus, according to local sources.
Ghassan Daghlas, a local activist who monitors Israeli settler violence in the area, told WAFA that a group of settlers gathered near the villages of Sebastia and Burqa and hurled stones and empty bottles at Palestinian vehicles travelling along the Nablus-Jenin, a section of Route 60. 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 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.
