Illegal Israeli settlers on Sunday began razing tracts of land in the Palestinian villages of Qusra and Jurish, to the south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to local sources.

Ghassan Daghlas, a local official in charge of monitoring settler violence, told WAFA Palestinian News Agency that settlers used bulldozers to raze lands in an area belonging to the aforementioned Palestinian villages.

Recently, the occupied West Bank has seen an increase in illegal settler attacks, storming of villages, vandalism, and physical assault and harassment against the Palestinian people.

It is important to note that settlers also recently cut down hundreds of olive trees, and grape vines belonging to Palestinians.
