30 settlers attack Palestinian car near Nablus

Oct. 14, 2013 2:14 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 17, 2013 11:21 A.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- A group of 30 settlers attacked a vehicle carrying three Palestinians near Nablus on Monday.

Nasser Hamarsheh, 60, his cousin Montaser and an international guest were traveling to the former site of Homesh settlement northwest of Nablus when 30 settlers hiding behind olive trees attacked the car with stones and sticks.

The car managed to escape the attack and an Israeli military patrol went to investigate the site of the incident.

In September, Israel's military said that land confiscated in 1978 to build the illegal settlement of Homesh would be returned to its Palestinian owners.

The land, which belonged to the village of Burqa, was used to build the settlement, which was evacuated in 2005.

Palestinians say that armed Jewish settlers have been trickling back to try and reestablish a permanent presence there.

Settler violence against Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank is routine.
