Days of Palestine – Nablus
Israeli settlers vandalized on Saturday 15 Palestinian vehicles and scrawled hate graffiti in Qaryut village, south of Nablus, according to a local activist.
Bashar Qaryuti, a local anti-settlement activist, said that a group of settlers sneaked their way into the southern and western parts of the northern West Bank village, where they punctured the tires of 15 vehicles and spray-painted hate anti-Palestinian graffiti on the external walls of nearby houses.
The vandals came from the nearby colonial settlements of Shilo and Elie.
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, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
