Settlers attack Palestinian homes, torch farmland in West Bank


NABLUS, July 17, 2018 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers attacked on Tuesday Palestinian homes in the northern West Bank village of Assira al-Qibliya and set farmland on fire, according to Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlers’ activities in the north of the West Bank.

He told WAFA that settlers from the illegal Yitzhar settlement attacked the Palestinian homes and torched land planted with olive trees.

He said residents rushed to defend their homes and land but the Israeli army intervened to protect the settlers and confronted the residents shooting at them to keep them back.

Residents clashed with the soldiers, as well as the settlers, he said.
