RAMALLAH - 22 Novemebr 2019: Israeli settlers torched overnight several Palestinian vehicles and scrawled hate graffiti in the northern West Bank district of Nablus, said a settlement watchdog.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement construction in northern West Bank, said a group of settlers sneaked their way into Majdal Bani Fadel and Qabalan villages, where they torched several vehicles and scrawled anti-Palestinian hate graffiti, state news agency WAFA reported Friday.
Settlers also sneaked their way to Beit Dajan village, east of Nablus city, where they vandalized a villager’s house and set his vehicle on fire.
Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have repeatedly blamed Israel for fostering a “culture of impunity” for Jewish settlers committing violent acts against Palestinians.
Over 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law
