Israeli forces conduct searches near Burin after settler car targeted

Feb. 8, 2014 8:41 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 10, 2014 7:17 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A large force of Israeli forces assembled south of Nablus late Saturday after a molotov cocktail was thrown at an Israeli settler's vehicle on the road earlier in the day.

Witnesses told Ma'an that large numbers of Israeli soldiers massed on the road leading to the Israeli settlement of Itzhar near the village of Burin after the incident.

According to eyewitnesses, Israeli forces fired a number of flares and began conducting searches in the area in order to detain those who had thrown the cocktail.

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.
