NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian-owned properties in the Burqa village in the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus, on Wednesday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli settlers threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles passing by.

The windows of the vehicles were damaged, no injuries were reported.

Israeli settlers also damaged traffic signs, uprooted trees and destroyed the front door of a local pharmacy.

Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have accused Israel of fostering a "culture of impunity" for Israelis committing violent acts against Palestinians.

Better known as "price tag" attacks, extremist Israeli settlers use violent acts of retribution on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and their outposts in the occupied West Bank.
