Israeli settlers attack Palestinian civilian, set fire to fields in north of West Bank


SALFIT, Wednesday, June 19, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers attacked today a Palestinian civilian and set fire to fields in two different locations in the north of the West Bank, local officials said.

In Kufl Haris village, north of Salfit, settlers threw rocks at a Palestinian house in the village injuring 64-year-old Mahmoud Bouzieh in the hand, according to Abdul Rahim Bouzieh, director of the village’s municipality.

In the village of Madama, south of the city of Nablus, settlers set fire to olive fields, said Ghassan Daghlas, a local official.

He said the settlers had earlier razed village land and when the residents stopped them and pushed them away, the settlers set fire to the olive fields in a revenge act.

Palestinians in the occupied West Bank have been demanding international protection against Israeli settler attacks, often condoned and supported by the army.
