NABLUS, Thursday, October 27, 2022 (WAFA) – A group of extremist Israeli settlers today attacked Palestinian vehicles to the south of Nablus, according to a local official.
Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the settlement file in the northern West Bank, told WAFA a group of settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar attacked vehicles carrying Palestinian license plates at Huwwara main street to the south of Nablus.
"Settler violence has long since become part of Palestinians’ daily life under occupation. Israeli security forces enable these actions, which result in Palestinian casualties – injuries and fatalities – as well as damage to land and property. In some cases, they even serve as an armed escort, or even join in the attacks," said the Israeli information center for human rights in occupied territories, B’Tselem.
"Investigations, if even opened, are usually closed with no action taken against perpetrators as part of an undeclared policy of leniency. The long-term effect of this violence is the dispossession of Palestinians from increasing parts of the West Bank, making it easier for Israel to take over land and resources," said B'Tselem.
