By Avd er-Racub
RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA): Israeli settlers have reportedly attacked scores of Palestinian homes in the last two days in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.
Ghassan Daghlas, an official in charge of the settlement file in the northern West Bank affiliated with the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) told Anadolu Agency about the increasing attacks.
He said settlers attacked 40 Palestinian houses in Nablus and noted the attacks have intensified in villages around Nablus.
Daghlas pointed out that the settlers used weapons, stones and sticks in the attacks.
The settlers also attacked many homes in Qaryout town, south of Nablus, and injured several Palestinians, in addition to attempting to abduct one man.
On Thursday at night, Israeli colonizers attacked many Palestinian cars near Sielet ath-Thaher town, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
This morning Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian home and two cars in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
Local sources said the settlers hurled stones at the home and the car of Nasser Darwish Barham, in the western area of the town, causing property damage.
Earlier, the Palestinian Presidency warned that escalating attacks by Jewish settlers in the West Bank would lead to a cycle of violence.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said that from January to November, Jewish settlers carried out 427 attacks in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
There are more than 250 illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank, which Israel occupied in 1967.
More than 500,000 Jewish settlers residents make life more difficult for Palestinians living under the occupation.
Under international law, all Jewish settlements in the occupied territories are considered illegal.
