Right-wing Israeli settlers gathered in the northern and southern West Bank on Friday afternoon and threw stones at Palestinian vehicles.

According to the Palestinian News Agency Wafa, Israeli settlers attacked and threw stones at Palestinian vehicles on the Rt. 60 bypass road near Kharsina area east of Hebron.

Local sources told Wafa that a number of settlers gathered on the settler street and threw stones at Palestinian vehicles, while Israeli forces reinforced their presence in the area.

In addition, the Israeli occupation forces erected a checkpoint at the entrance of Wadi al-Shajneh, west of Dura. They stopped vehicles and checked their cards.

In the northern West Bank, dozens of Israeli settlers on Friday closed the road linking Huwwara, south of Nablus, to areas of the northern West Bank (Yitzhar) and threw stones at Palestinian cars.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official in charge of the Palestinian response to illegal Israeli settlements in the northern West Bank, told Wafa that dozens of settlers, under the protection of the Israeli occupation army, closed Yitzhar Street and attacked Palestinian vehicles with rocks and stones.
