Settlers torch chicken coop in Nablus, official says

March 17, 2013 10:05 A.M. (Updated: March 19, 2013 4:41 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers set fire to a chicken coop in a Nablus village on Sunday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers from Migdalim set fire to a chicken coop belonging to Jamal Abu Rida in nearby Qusra village.

Daghlas called on the international community to end settler attacks against Palestinians.

Settler violence against Palestinian communities and their property is routine in the occupied West Bank, with settlers enjoying widespread impunity for their crimes.

Annual figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.
