Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli settlers launched a homemade projectile towards the Palestinian villages of 'Awarta and Odala, south of Nablus, on Monday.

Hani Abdel Latif, a member of the 'Awarta village council, told Ma'an in a phone interview that a projectile landed on Monday afternoon in agricultural land between the villages of 'Awarta and Odala. No injuries were reported.

Abdel Latif added that this is the forth time that Israeli settlers have launched such projectiles at Palestinian villages south of Nablus. Palestinian security sources have confirmed finding these homemade rockets after they landed near Palestinian villages.

Israeli authorities have acknowledged that a group of settlers belonging to a religious school in the settlement of Yitzhar have been producing homemade rockets to launch at nearby Palestinian villages. Yitzhar is a settlement to the south of Nablus known for its ideological settler population.
