Settlers smash windshields of Palestinian vehicles near Nablus

22:00 Nov 11 2014 road south of Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers smashed the windshields of more than 30 Palestinian vehicles during a rally Monday night on the main road south of Nablus in the northern West Bank, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that dozens of settlers marched from the Zaatara checkpoint to the Huwwara checkpoint, smashed cars, and damaged other Palestinian property along the way.

Israeli soldiers forced Palestinians to shut down their shops on the main road in Huwwara, Daghlas added.

The settler aggression came after two Palestinian attacks killed an Israeli soldier in Tel Aviv and a settler near Bethlehem earlier in the day.

Settler attacks against Palestinians and their property are commonplace in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, but are rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

There are over 500,000 Israeli settlers living in settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

Correction: An earlier version of this story said that Israeli forces smashed the windshields of Palestinian vehicles. In fact, Daghlas told Ma'an Israeli settlers smashed the windshields.
