Israeli settlers attack Palestinian vehicles in Nablus

Oct. 11, 2018 4:27 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 12, 2018 11:33 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A large group of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles, on Thursday, with stones as they passed by the intersection of the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, south of the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

A Ma'an reporter said that a group of Israeli settlers attacked and damaged several Palestinian-owned vehicles passing by the intersection of the illegal Yitzhar settlement, that is built on lands of several Palestinian villages in Nablus.

No injuries were reported.

Eyewitnesses said that Israeli forces set up military checkpoints across various areas of the Nablus district, in addition to extensive searches of vehicles and the passengers ID's.

The set up of military checkpoints and extensive searches were carried out due to a recent stabbing attack at the Huwwara military checkpoint, in the Nablus district, causing injuries to an Israeli soldier and Israeli settler.

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.

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.
