Nablus (QNN) – Israeli settlers on Monday early morning attacked and caused partial damage to Palestinian vehicles driving on a northern West Bank road, according to witnesses.
Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, said Jewish settlers set tires on fire to block a major road between Nablus and Jenin and attacked Palestinians on that road.
Jewish settlers have escalated their attacks against Palestinians and their property in that area during recent weeks.
Yesterday, settlers leveled a large tract of land in the village of Jalud, near Nablus, as a prelude to take it over and expand neighboring illegal settlements.
Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Better known as “price tag” attacks, extremist Israeli settlers have used violent acts of retribution on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and their outposts in the occupied West Bank.
