A number of extremist Israeli settlers invaded, Thursday, Einabous village, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and torched a Palestinian car.

Ghassan Douglas, a Palestinian official in charge of Settlement File in the northern part of the West Bank, reported that the settlers came from Yitzhar nearby illegal settlement, and added that the burnt car belongs to resident Zeid Mustafa Allan.

Local residents chased the settlers out of the village; no clashes or injuries were reported.

Settlers are responsible for numerous similar attacks against the residents, the homes, lands and property in several parts of the West Bank, including in occupied East Jerusalem.

On Monday, January 16, 2012, settlers torched the car of a Palestinian Authority Intelligence officer, Mohammad Ghannam, in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

On Tuesday, January 10, 2012, a group of fundamentalist Israeli settlers burnt three Palestinian cars in Dir Estia village, in the West Bank district of Salfit, and defaced the local mosque with “Price Tag” graffiti.

On Wednesday morning, January 4th, settlers set fire to two Palestinian trucks and spray-painted anti-Arab racist graffiti.

On December of 2011, settlers carried out four attacks against mosques in several parts of the occupied West Bank, and set ablaze five Palestinian cars near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

In the attack on the mosque, the settlers spray-painted slogans including 'Pricetag', (a reference to the idea that Palestinians must all 'pay a price' for the dismantling of illegal settlement outposts by the Israeli military).

Extremist settlers who carry out price tag attacks also carried out several attacks against offices and property that belong to Israeli peace groups, including Israel’s Peace Now movement, blaming them for the evacuation of illegal settlement outpost in the West Bank.


NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers on Thursday set fire to a car in Nablus, a PA official said.

Three settlers from Yitzhar settlement set fire to the car in Einabus village, PA official Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an.

The owner, Zain Mustafa Allan, said the car was parked outside his home when the attack took place.

Earlier, settlers threw rocks at Palestinian cars driving near Yitzhar settlement, Daghlas said.

The Nablus district experienced the majority of settler violence in 2011, The Palestine Center says.

In 2011, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported that settler attacks had increased by 50 percent on the previous year.

Settler violence against local Palestinian communities is widespread, but figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.
