Israeli settlers attack cars, homes in northern West Bank

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers on Thursday threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at Palestinian homes and cars in the northern West Bank.

Residents of Yitzhar attacked cars on roads around the illegal settlement in Nablus, damaging several vehicles, a Ma'an reporter said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a PA official who monitors settlement activities, said Palestinian cars were forced to detour to avoid Huwara.

The incident followed a reported attack on an Israeli bus in the area. Israel's Army Radio reported that Palestinians opened fire at an Israeli bus near Huwara on Wednesday evening, causing no injuries.

Meanwhile, residents of Bracha settlement attacked Burin village, and threw Molotov cocktails at Bashir al-Zein's home, Daghlas told Ma'an.

Israeli military liaison officials arrived and stopped the settlers, he said.
