Jewish settlers, today, attacked Palestinian vehicles traveling on roads in the north of the West Bank, with stones, causing injury to people and damage to several cars, according to a Palestinian official.

Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the Israeli settlements file in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that settlers from the former settlement of Homesh, which was built illegally on Burqa and Silat al-Daher lands, hurled stones at a number of Palestinian vehicles travelling between Nablus and Jenin.

Daghlas said that 25 vehicles sustained broken windows and several people were injured from shattered glass. They were treated on the location.

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