Settlers vandalize farmer's car in retaliation for Israeli permit

Oct. 16, 2008 5:01 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 16, 2008 5:01 P.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - A group of settlers destroyed a Palestinian car near the illegal Israeli settlement of Alon Moriah, east of the West Bank city of Nablus, witnesses told Ma'an.

According to 43-year-old Hamadallah Afanah, settlers destroyed the car "within 100 meters of an Israeli checkpoint."

"A number of Israeli settlers destroyed the windows of my car and blew out its tires with knives," he said.

Afanah said he was in the area near the settlement to harvest olive trees, having received a three-day permit issued by the Israeli military. Although his family owns the land, Afanah's presence there apparently infuriated nearby settlers, who later retaliated by destroying his car, he said.
