Israeli settlers attack Palestinian vehicles on road near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles on the road south of Nablus on Sunday, causing damage to a number of cars, locals said.

A number of Palestinian vehicles were damaged in the attacks, as their windows and windshields were destroyed by the projectiles near the northern West Bank city.

Hashim Abu Zaitoun, a bus driver, told Ma'an that a number of Israeli settlers threw stones at Palestinian vehicles as they passed near Beta junction.

Abu Zaitoun added that the settlers' attack had destroyed the windshield of his bus as he was passing through the area.

Multiple Israeli settlements and checkpoints ring Nablus to the south, cutting the city off from the rest of the West Bank.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
