PA official: Settlers attack vehicles in Nablus

Sept. 8, 2013 10:08 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 8, 2013 9:20 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of extremist settlers attacked dozens of Palestinian vehicles in Nablus overnight Saturday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers threw empty bottles and stones at cars traveling on the Ramallah-Nablus road near the illegal Eli settlement.

At least 25 vehicles were damaged, he added.

Israeli forces closed the checkpoints of Huwwara and Zatara in response to the incident.

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.
