Settlers attack workers, cars in Nablus

July 31, 2013 1:39 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 2, 2013 7:11 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers attacked Palestinian workers in a Nablus village on Wednesday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that 15 settlers from the illegal Yizhar settlement attacked laborers in the village of Asira al-Qibliya.

The group of twenty workers were building a water tank near the village when they were attacked. Settlers also tried to destroy the water tank, saying it was too close to their settlement, Daghlas said.

On Tuesday, settlers from Yizhar attacked over 15 Palestinian cars at a junction by the illegal settlement, throwing glass bottles and rocks at vehicles.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank with impunity.

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.
