NABLUS, Monday, September 16, 2019 (WAFA) – Extremist Israeli settlers today vandalized Palestinian property and spray painted racist graffiti on a Palestinian house in the village of Duma, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, said a local official.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that settlers sneaked into the village during the night, slashed tiers of a vehicle and spray painted racist graffiti on the walls of a house belonging to Murad Ahmad Dawabsheh.
Duma village is where an arson attack by Jewish settlers on July 31, 2015 resulted in the death of three members of a Dawabsheh family, including 18-month-old Ali, who was burned alive in the fire, while both his parents died from suffocation.
Settlers’ attacks against Palestinian civilians and their property in the occupied West Bank became a daily routine, which ranges from throwing stones, vandalizing vehicles, blocking roads and raiding villages. They are rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
