Israeli settlers attack Palestinian vehicles near Nablus

July 3, 2015 2:19 P.M. (Updated: July 3, 2015 6:14 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers from the Yitzhar settlement in southern Nablus threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles at the Yitzhar road junction in the occupied West Bank Friday.

Several vehicles were smashed including a vehicle belonging to the director of appeals prosecution in the West Bank, Thaer Khalil.

Witnesses said that no injuries were reported.

Friday's incident comes as tensions between Palestinian locals and settlers living in the area in violation of international law result in frequent such attacks.

Last week three Israeli settlers were injured and one killed in a shooting south of Nablus and an explosive device was allegedly hurled at a settler vehicle near Ramallah.

Following the assault, dozens of settlers from the illegal settlement of Beit El were reported to have attacked Palestinian vehicles on the road between Ramallah and Nablus, and several Nablus-area villages were raided by Israeli forces.

An estimated 324 attacks were carried out by settlers on Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank in 2014, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, while 87 Israelis reported injuries from Palestinians both inside of Israel and the West Bank in the same time period.
