Official: Settlers start fire near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers burned farmland south of Nablus on Saturday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Doughlas, who monitors settler violence and vandalism in the northern West Bank, said land in the Einabus and Huwwara villages burned as the result of a fire set by residents of the illegal Yitzhar settlement.

The settlers had started a fire on the Einabus mountain but it spread to Huwara, he said. Residents of the villages were trying to control the blaze but strong winds hampered their effort.
