Official: Israeli settlers torch Palestinian fields in Burin

July 1, 2013 10:45 A.M. (Updated: July 1, 2013 10:06 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers started several fires in Burin village south of Nablus on Sunday evening, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlements in the northern West Bank, said residents of Bracha and Yitzhar settlements torched Palestinian fields, leading to clashes with locals.

He said Israeli soldiers intervened and fired tear gas and plastic-coated bullets at Palestinian residents and their homes.

An Israeli military spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Earlier Sunday, Jewish extremists from Yitzhar set fire on Sunday to Palestinian olive groves in Einabus, near Burin, destroying 200 olive trees, Daghlas said.
