NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Settlers on Friday escalated attacks against Palestinians in villages south of the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian officials said.

Palestinian Authority settlement official Ghassan Doughlas said residents of the illegal Yitzhar settlement set fire to a bulldozer belonging to Ibrahim Ishteiyah in Burin.

Meanwhile in Jit, settlers sprayed racist graffiti and punctured the tires of villagers' cars, Doughlas said.

The PA official added added that settlers chopped down 25 trees belonging to Hassan and Mohammad Safadi in Urif.

In the past week, settlers set fire to two vehicles in Burin and threw a Molotov cocktail at a home, uprooted olive trees planted by UNRWA officials, and injured two others in a mob attack.
