Israeli settlers vandalize vehicles, spray death threats near Nablus

May 3, 2019 12:15 P.M. (Updated: May 5, 2019 2:22 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers vandalized and spray painted racist, anti-Arab slogans, on the walls and doors of Palestinian-owned home and vehicles, on Friday, in Huwwara town, in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

Locals told Ma'an that they were shocked to find that Israeli settlers spray painted racist, anti-Arab slogans and death threats on the walls and doors of one of the homes and several walls across Huwwara.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a number of Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar raided the town in the early hours of Friday.

Daghlas said that Israeli settlers punctured the tires of three Palestinian-owned vehicles, belonging to Rana Adnan Abu Haniye, Fadi Muhammad Damidi, and Muhammad Ibrahim Damidi.

Additionally, Israeli settlers spray-painted racist, anti-Arab slogans, as well as death threats on the walls in the town and on at least 12 vehicles.

Daghlas confirmed that eight of the vehicles, including a truck, were completely damaged.

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

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.

The Israeli NGO B'Tselem reported that Israeli settlers' vandalism in the occupied West Bank is a daily routine and is fully backed by Israeli authorities.

B'Tselem said that "Israel benefits from the repercussions, as settler violence has gradually dispossessed Palestinians of more and more areas in the West Bank, paving the way for a state takeover of land and resources. This occurs because Palestinians avoid entering areas in which they have been attacked, usually close to settlements."
