Dozens of Israeli settlers block main road, damage vehicles

Sept. 17, 2018 1:17 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 17, 2018 1:59 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers blocked the Nablus-Ramallah main road, late Sunday night, as a form of protest to the stabbing attack that was carried out earlier Sunday near the illegal Israeli settlement of Gush Etzion.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, said that dozens of Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Eli, closed the main road and threw rocks at vehicles attempting to pass.

Daghlas confirmed that several Palestinian-owned vehicles were damaged by Israeli settlers throwing rocks.

Witnesses said that Israeli forces reopened the road and removed Israeli settlers from the area several hours later.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
