NABLUS, Monday, December 05, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian Sunday evening suffocated in a settler attack in Huwara town, south of occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to an activist.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that a group of settlers, under army protection, attacked Palestinian houses and vehicles at the outskirts of the town, hitting a resident by a stone and damaging several vehicles.
The man also suffered from suffocation due to tear gas fired by the soldiers.
Settlers violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 800,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
