NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers set fire to Palestinian farmland south of the West Bank city of Nablus on Thursday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Doughlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement affairs in the northern West Bank, said the incident occurred near the illegal settlement of Itamar, south of Nablus.

The settlers burned 15 dunnums of farmland of olive trees in an area known as Berkat Al-Marah, which belongs to residents from Roujeeb in the southeast of Nablus, Doughlas said.

He said the settlers deliberately targeted lands belonging to owners Hafeth Suleiman Darwish Dweikat and Ahmad Hafeth Dweikat, and said the residents were present during the attack.
