A group of illegal Israeli colonialist settlers invaded, on Wednesday at dawn, the village of Qaryout, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, wrote racist graffiti and punctured the tires of several Palestinian cars.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the assailants came from a nearby colony in the southeastern part of Qaryout.

He added that the assailants punctured the tires of nine Palestinian cars, and wrote racist graffiti, before fleeing the village.
