Olive saplings vandalized by settlers in Qarawat Bani Hassan

NABLUS, Friday, December 16, 2022 (WAFA) – Scores of Israeli settlers attacked homes in the Palestinian village of Madama, to the south of Nablus, this evening, while others uprooted olive saplings for Palestinian owners in the town of Qarawat Bani Hassan, in Salfit province, according to local sources.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian anti-settlement activist, told WAFA that dozens of settlers under army protection attacked homes of Palestinians on the outskirts of Madama village, smashed their windows and fired live shots towards the local residents. No injuries were reported.

Meantime, settlers uprooted and vandalized nearly 20 Palestinian-owned olive saplings after breaking into a ranch near the town of Qarawat Bani Hassan, in the central West Bank province of Salfit.

Violence and vandalism by Israeli settlers are commonplace in the occupied West Bank, and are never prosecuted by the occupation authorities.

Attacks by settlers against Palestinians particularly intensified during the last few months, with Israeli occupation army turning a blind eye to the violence spree and providing the settlers with protection.
