Israeli settlers vandalize Palestinian vehicles in Nablus

Jan. 30, 2019 2:42 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 31, 2019 11:26 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers vandalized several Palestinian vehicles in the al-Lubban al-Sharqiyyeh village, south of the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus, on Wednesday morning.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israeli settlers from the Maale Levona illegal Israeli settlement raided the village, spray-painted racist graffiti and Stars of David on three vehicles.

Locals chased the settlers, who then managed to flee the village.

Known as "price tag" attacks, extremist Israeli settlers carry out violent acts of punishment on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and outposts in the occupied West Bank and Palestinian towns and villages in Israel.

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

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.
