Days of Palestine – Nablus
Israeli occupation soldiers detained last night a 26-year-old Palestinian man for defending him home against Jewish settlers who attacked Palestinian homes in the village of Burin, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to local sources.
They told the official WAFA news agency that settlers from the illegal settlement of Givat Ronin attacked Palestinian homes on the outskirts of the village of Burin, prompting residents to confront them.
Israeli soldiers in the area intervened on behalf of the settlers and fired teargas canisters at the Palestinians before detaining one person, said the sources.
Settler violence against Palestinians has been on the rise, particularly during the olive harvest season in the occupied territories.
