Settlers stone vehicles, torch fields near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Settlers attacked dozens of Palestinian vehicles with rocks late Tuesday near Nablus, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israeli forces closed a main road near Yitzhar settlement after settlers attacked dozens of vehicles with stones.

No injuries were reported.

Settlers then set fire to olive trees on Palestinian land in nearby Huwwara village, which destroyed over 5 acres of land.

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.
