On Monday, dozens of Israeli settlers torched agricultural lands and attacked Palestinian farmers near Madame village, south of Nablus.According to local sources, there were some 37 settlers from the nearby Yitzhar settlement, who arrived in the village divided in four separate groups and started harassing farmers.

The burning of the lands came after an argument between local farmers and the settlers in the Ein Ash-Sha’ira area, south of the village.

While the farmers protested against the incursion of the settlers, one of the groups set fire to fields and fled, village council member Hasan Ziyada claimed.
