Israeli Settlers Gather on Tulkarem-Nablus Road, Attack Palestinian Vehicles

Days of Palestine – Nablus

Dozens of extremist settlers gathered on the Tulkarem-Nablus Road, rioting and committing acts of violence against passing Palestinian vehicles.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, said settlers spread out on the road connecting Tulkarem and Nablus, rioting and attacking Palestinian-registered vehicles.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

Settler violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, and attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
