PA official: Settlers attack Nablus village
Monday, August 8, 2013
NABLUS (Ma’an) — Dozens of extremist settlers on Monday set fire to a hill south of Nablus, a Palestinian Authority official said.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that a group of settlers attacked Palestinian homes in Jalud village, clashing with local residents.
No injuries were reported.
The settlers set fire to a hill know as Mount Jalud.
Settler violence against Palestinian communities and their property is routine in the occupied West Bank, with settlers enjoying widespread impunity for their crimes.
Annual figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.
