PA official responds to settler threats

Dec. 26, 2011 2:03 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2011 1:41 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority official responsible for monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank said a recent settler rally targeting his work would not stop him from exposing settler crimes "to the whole world."

Dozens of extremist settlers rallied on Sunday on a main road west of Nablus, holding signs of protest against PA official Ghassan Daghlas.

Some settlers held up pictures of Daghlas, calling him an "inciter against settlers and settlements."

The PA official said that “such threats will not divert us from continuing to expose settler assaults to the whole world.”

Settler attacks in the West Bank against Palestinians have increased by more than 50 percent this year, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
