NABLUS, Sunday, January 29, 2023 (WAFA) – A total of 144 attacks were carried out last night by Israeli settlers against Palestinian civilians and their property in the occupied West Bank province of Nablus, today said Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official in charge of the settlement file in the province.
He told WAFA that fanatic settler groups hurled stones and partially damaged at least 120 vehicles on roads, while they set on fire six vehicles completely damaging them. At least 22 Palestinian-owned shops were attacked by settlers in the town of Huwwara.
Daghlas said the majority of attacks were focused on the towns of villages of Huwwara, Madama, Qusra, Jorish and Majdal Bani Fadel.
Douglas warned of the escalation of settler attacks against Palestinians across the West Bank, noting to an unprecedented increase in the frequency of terror attacks against Palestinian citizens and their property.
Last night’s attacks are part of an ongoing wave of unabated settler violence encouraged by the new far-right Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu and with incitement from his ultranationalist cabinet ministers Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich.
