Settlers attack Palestinian vehicles along Nablus highway

June 16, 2014 10:45 P.M. (Updated: June 17, 2014 12:36 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles in the Nablus area late Sunday, causing damage to over 30 cars, a Palestinian official said.

Large groups of settlers attacked vehicles along the main Ramallah-Nablus highway, hurling stones at cars near the villages of Yatma, Kafr Laqif, Turmus Ayya and Jinsafut, Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an.

No injuries were reported.

A day earlier, settlers gathered on main roads near Bethlehem and Hebron to protest against the recent disappearance of three Israeli settlers, hurling rocks at Palestinian vehicles.

The demonstrators also chanted anti-Arab slogans.

Also Saturday, three Palestinians were injured as settlers hurled stones at vehicles traveling on main roads across the northern and central West Bank.

More than 500,000 Israelis live in illegal settlements across the West Bank.
