Villagers: Settlers torch two cars near Nablus

Feb. 23, 2011 10:18 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 25, 2011 10:16 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers set fire to two cars in the village of Burin, south of Nablus, residents said, and threw a Molotov Cocktail at a home east of the area.

The Fatah official charged with monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Doughlas, said Jewish settlers from the Bracha settlement were behind the arson.

The cars belonged to Khaled Walid Taher and Abdul Salam Abdul Hameed, the official said, adding that the vehicles were damaged beyond repair.

East of the village, Doughlas added, settlers were seen throwing a Molotov Cocktail at the home of Ayman Sofan. Light damage was reported to the home, and no injuries were recorded.

Burin village has seen several waves of settler violence over the past years. In the past week, settlers in the area uprooted olive trees planted by UNRWA officials, and injured two others in a mob attack.
