In video - Israeli settlers attack Palestinian homes near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Five Palestinians were injured as Israeli settlers threw rocks at Palestinian homes in the Burin village, in southern Nablus City of the northern occupied West Bank, on Saturday.

The Israeli human rights group, Yesh Din, reported that Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar threw rocks at Palestinians, while working in their lands, in the Burin village.

Meanwhile, more than 30 Israeli settlers from Givat Ronen, attacked Palestinian homes in the same village and destroyed agricultural lands near it.

During both attacks, Israeli forces intervened to provide protection to Israeli settlers and attacked the Palestinian residents by firing tear-gas bombs towards them, while settlers continued to throw rocks.

Yesh Din confirmed that five Palestinians from Burin had suffered light injuries due to the two various attacks.

Yesh Din also reported that since the start of October, Israeli settlers from the Yitzhar settlement and from the illegal Israeli outpost of Givat Ronen, have carried out about seven attacks against Palestinians from the Burin village and other surrounding villages.

Yesh Din called on the international community for immediate intervention and pressure on Israeli to prevent these violent attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinian residents.

Palestinian towns and villages in the Nablus area are surrounded by Israeli settlements and outposts, many of which are protected by the Israeli military and have gained notoriety for being comprised of the most extremist settlers.

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.
