Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles south of Nablus


NABLUS, Friday, May 15, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Thursday evening attacked a number of Palestinian vehicles near Burin village, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that a large number of settlers hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles travelling along the road connecting the west Bank cities of Nablus and Qalqilia.

They also sneaked their way into Burin village in an attempt to attack the villagers’ houses, but their attack was fended off.

The attackers reportedly came from Yitzhar, an illegal colonial settlement inhabited by hardcore fanatic Jews.

Settler 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 almost 834,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
