Israeli settlers vandalize vehicles, spray racist graffiti in Nablus

Sept. 13, 2018 2:14 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 14, 2018 1:31 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers punctured and vandalized a number of Palestinian-owned vehicles in the Jalud village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on predawn Thursday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity, told Ma'an that Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Ahiya stormed the village and punctured the tires of three Palestinian vehicles.

Daghlas confirmed that the damaged vehicles belonged to residents Muhammad Kamal, Hussein Kamal Abad and Ali Kamal Abad.

Israeli settlers also sprayed racist, anti-Palestinian graffiti on the walls of Palestinian homes before leaving the village.

Israeli settlers responsible for vandalizing Palestinian property were not taken into custody.

According to a report from Israeli NGO B'Tselem in April 2018 alone, 14 Israeli settler assaults were documented across the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli NGO B’Tselem reported that Israeli settlers' vandalism in the occupied West Bank is a daily routine and is fully backed by Israeli authorities.

Better known as "price tag" attacks, extremist Israeli settlers use 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.
