The Ma’an News Agency are reporting that hundreds of settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar, near Nablus held a rally, Monday night, leading to the closure of a West Bank road.Witnesses reported to the agency, that the settlers pelted Palestinian cars with stones and chanted slogans against Palestinians and other Arabs.

This latest attack follows an escalation in tension in the Nablus area this September.

Following the demolition of a settler outpost of Migron, that had not been sanctioned by the Israeli government, settlers carried out reprisal attacks, known as ‘price-tag’ attacks, committing arson at a mosque in Qusra, south of Nablus, and vandalized an Israeli military base in the area.

Furthermore, reference was made to Migron when unknown perpetrators vandalized the exterior of a Peace Now activist’s apartment, writing ‘Price Tag Migron’, ‘Migron forever, suppression of traitors’ and ‘Peace Now, the end is near’.
