NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Hundreds of settlers stormed the Nablus village of Asira al-Qibliya overnight Sunday, causing damage to Palestinian property.

Witnesses told Ma'an that around midnight more than 200 settlers from the notorious Yitzhar settlement entered the village and threw rocks at Palestinian homes.

Local resident Ibrahim Makhlouf said that the settlers smashed the windows of a bus and tried to set it on fire.

“They were armed and wearing black uniform as if it was an organized militia,” he told Ma'an.

The attackers smashed the windows of three other houses belonging to Basim Salih, Jamil Abdullah and Khalil Mahmoud Salih, Makhlouf added.

Settler-related incidents resulting in Palestinian injuries and damage to property are up more than 50 percent this year, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, which documents violence in the Palestinian territories.

Last week, a mosque was set on fire by settlers in the West Bank village of Bruqin, near Salfit, local officials said.

A report released by The Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees found that in October, over 53 percent of settler attacks had taken place in the Nablus district.

Time for a full blown revolution in Palestine aimed solely at these coward squatters and their enclaves .... Rid the WB of this scum. If they were men enough to face off with the Pals without arms and their soldiers guarding them, there wouldn't be a single incident to report .... Europe's filth and stench off loaded in Palestine....

IF in reality "Hundreds of settlers attack Nablus village",
then there would be lots of photos, showing dozens attacking,
instead of just one, with 3 jews in a field.

The Truth is that:
1- the PLO & Hamas exxagerate/lie, and Arab medias like Maan print them.
2- It is time for you think, rather than believe their lies, and
3- It is "Time for a full blown revolution in" the USA, the United Nations, and throughout the world, where such lying Arab proaganda is just ignored !!!

@ 3 Truths -- 'lying Arab propaganda'?? If what you say were not so utterly dishonest and a distortion of the truth of the tyranny of Israel, it would be funny - but as we mourn the death of the young murderdered Tamimi at the hands of the IDF, the commander of which, Major Peter Lerner, then mocked his death via twitter, you must allow us to call your bluff and identify you as the liar you are.

@ 3 mmm I often think: where are the pictures of the hundreds of rocket attacks on "Israel". All the zionists show is a file photo so all we have are words. And so I only believe it when a party is claiming an attack like they always do if they fired a rocket at "Israel". The Palestinians provide much proof by pictures and video's. It's a fact, settlers are not human (the zionist govt isn't human either)

the reports coming out of Israel funneled by these leftist groups are grossly exaggerated and inaccurate. Woe to the person who is led to perceive the situation in Israel based solely on them. The reality is that the settlers attack only very rarely and in small groups, while the Arabs attack's are so common and of such magnitude that Israeli's think twice before even driving through the west bank.

First, what exactly was Tamini doing before being hit ??
- Most likely something threatening, so forget about "murder", and
Second, what exactly did the IDF Major say (& provide a verifiable link) ??
And, think if you can, Why would the Major admit anything publicly,
so as to risk being charged ??

There are hundreds of pictures of rocket attacks on Israel, and
hundreds of pictures of stone throwing "Palestinians" too !!!

Are you naive or just brain-washed?
You should educate yourself and continue reading this site and one other (Israeli) - you will get a better insight into the daily atrocities perpetrated by the settlers and more generally, Israel, on the Palestinians.
According to many enlightened American posters, their news media is biased too much towards Israel, so keep reading here and learn!

To Carine #10 '#7- Mat/USA Are you naive or just brain-washed? You should educate yourself and continue reading this site and one other...' You assume Matt is actually interested in the truth. He's not. Like most Israel supporters, he's interested in Israel as a vehicle to express his urges towards racial violence. He could care less who's 'right.' He just wants to see ragheads die.

Re #9 @#s...'- Most likely something threatening, so forget about "murder"' Israel can kill anyone who does something 'threatening.' This wouldn't apply to Jews, though -- the state can't shoot down Haredim throwing stones, for example. It comes down to anyone who is not Jewish doing something threatening. And inasmuch as the state's word will always be taken as to what the victim was doing, the final version is 'the state can kill anyone who is not Jewish.' And indeed, that's the case.
