Israeli settlers torch Palestinian farm in 'price tag' attack

July 2, 2014 10:53 A.M. (Updated: July 4, 2014 11:08 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers early Wednesday set fire to an animal farm in the northern West Bank on Wednesday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a group of settlers set fire to a sheep farm in Aqraba village south of Nablus at 3 a.m.

Palestinians managed to round up the sheep, but the steel structure surrounding the farm was destroyed by the fire, Daghlas said.

Settlers spray-painted the words "blood vengeance" and "price tag" in Hebrew on the outer walls of the farm, he added.

The farm belongs to Fadi Basim Bani Jabir.

Daghlas said the settlers came from the illegal settlement of Itamar south of Nablus.

Later, in the Bethlehem district, Israeli settlers hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles as they drove on a road near the village of Husan, locals said.

A number of vehicles were hit and sustained damages, they said.

The attacks come in the wake of the burial of three Israeli teens who were found dead in the Hebron district on Monday.

Hours after they were buried on Tuesday, around hundreds of Israelis marched through Jerusalem, stopping cars and shouting "Death to Arabs," police and witnesses said.

The perpetrators of violence against Palestinian communities are rarely prosecuted. There are hundreds of racist attacks against Palestinians in Israel and the occupied West Bank every year.
