Settlers hurl rocks at Palestinian vehicles near Ramallah

Feb. 1, 2015 10:58 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 2, 2015 3:25 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers on Saturday evening gathered on the main road between Ramallah and Nablus near the Jewish-only settlement of Beit El settlement and hurled rocks at passing Palestinian vehicles.

Witnesses told Ma'an that several vehicles sustained damages in the attacks.

The witnesses said that Israeli soldiers were standing next to the settlers as they attacked the vehicles but did not intervene.

The incident came after Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian south of Nablus after a group of youths reportedly threw Molotov cocktails at cars belonging to Israeli settlers on a nearby road.

In the wake of the killing, Israeli soldiers deployed widely in the region between Ramallah and Nablus.

While Palestinians in the West Bank have white license plates, Jewish settlers have yellow plates.
