Settlers raid Nablus village, burn Hebron car

Jan. 1, 2013 1:03 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 3, 2013 9:54 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Dozens of settlers raided the northern West Bank village Qusra overnight Monday, uprooting more than 190 olive trees, an official told Ma'an.

Several residents of the village, near Nablus, were assaulted, and homes and a tractor were also damaged in the raid, settlement monitoring official Ghassan Daghlas said.

Palestinian security guards chased the settlers, and detained four of them for a short period of time. The Israeli forces quickly intervened, entered the village, and released the settlers, Daghlas said.

Also overnight, settlers entered Beit Ummar village north of Hebron, and burned a car and tractor belonging to resident Suhail Bragheith.

The vandals also sprayed graffiti saying: "A good Arab is a dead Arab" and "Yitzhar revenge is on the properties today, and tomorrow will be on the souls." Israeli troops entered the village, and told residents they would investigate.
