Illegal Israeli settlers, under the full protection of occupation forces, attacked, on Sunday evening, Palestinian homes in the village of Madama, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, according to a local official.

According to Ghassan Daghlas, a local official who monitors Israeli violations and colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, settlers attacked Palestinian citizens’ homes in the southern part of the village.

Daghlas added that the colonizers attempted to damage doors and window of several Palestinian-owned homes, while Israeli forces fired concussion grenades and tear gas canisters at Palestinians who tried to defend their homes.

Several Palestinian civilians suffered the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation, in what Daghlas described as the second time settlers attacked the village in several hours.

While there no official reports, social media photos show Palestinian-owned trees cut and land set on fire, from the attack that occurred earlier Sunday, in the village.
