Settlers stone Palestinian vehicle southwest of Nablus

NABLUS, Israeli settlers Wednesday overnight attacked a Palestinian vehicle with stones near Burin village, southwest of Nablus city, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement construction in the northern West Bank, said that a group of settlers hurled stones at Mohammad al-Tammuni, a resident of Awarta village, as he was driving his vehicle on a road linking Nablus to Qalqilia, causing damages to his car.

The settlers came from Yitzhar, an illegal 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.
