Israeli settlers terrorize West Bank overnight

Jerusalem24 – Last night, Sunday, Israeli settlers roamed across the occupied West Bank attacking Palestinians and closing roads.

According to Ghassan Daghlas, an official who follows up the activity of settlers in the northern occupied West Bank, dozens of settlers amassed on roads and intersections near the town of Al-Lubban Al-Sharqiya, the road leading between Nablus and Qalqilya in the South, near the Beit Furik checkpoint in the east, near the Tanib junction in the West and on the Jenin-Nablus road.

The settlers were throwing stones at Palestinian vehicles passing by, as a group of them gathered near the Shilo settlement south of Nablus; under the protection of the Israeli army.

Meanwhile, settlers attacked Palestinians near the Annab checkpoint, East of Tulkarm. Bilal Zeidan from Deir Al-Ghosoun, north of Tulkarm, reported that he was waiting for his son to arrive from Nablus on public transport. He was informed that the vehicle his son was taking had been smashed and damaged by settlers. The Israeli military stopped the vehicle at the Annab checkpoint, detained all the passengers, and confiscated their ID cards.

He does not yet know what has happened to his son as communications between the two had been interrupted.

Also last night, settlers closed off the Shufa military checkpoint located at the entrance to the village of the same name, southeast of Tulkarm. Under the protection of the Israeli military, they prevented Palestinians from passing through.

This morning at dawn, Israeli settlers set fire to four Palestinian vehicles in the village of Jalud, south of Nablus. Daghlas reported that the settlers from the settlement of Adi Ad were behind the attack.
