Settlers attack Palestinian homes in north of West Bank

Israeli settlers today attacked Palestinian homes in the village of Burqa, northwest of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local resident.

Diab Hajji, who lives in the area of the village attacked by the settlers, said a group of armed settlers attacked the home of a local resident, throwing rocks at it and causing damage to windows.

The settlers also vandalized two vehicles and slashed their tires.

Hajji said the settlers attempted to attack him with pepper gas as he was returning home but was able to get away from them, explaining that the settlers regularly attack that area of the village since it is located on the main Jenin-Nablus road where settlers are present in large numbers.

Settlers also threw iron bars with spikes on the road, which caused damage to the tires of many Palestinian cars, he said.
