He said the settlers also set fire to trees in the area, according to WAFA.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

This violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, the uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
