West Bank, ALRAY - Hundreds of Israeli colonial settlers have carried out massive attacks against Palestinian towns near the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus.
Local sources said that hundreds of colonial settlers attacked Palestinian homes on the outskirts of Urif, south of Nablus, on Wednesday evening and set fire to a school in the town, under the protection of the Israeli occupation army.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces fired live rounds, rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas towards local Palestinian citizens as they were defending themselves against the colonial settlers.
Israeli colonial settlers also attacked Palestinian citizens and their property in Burqa town, northwest of Nablus.
Medics said that they treated five people with breathing difficulties after inhaling tear gas fired by the Israeli occupation army.
Hundreds of armed Israeli colonial settlers carried out a series of terrorist attacks against several Palestinian towns and villages across the occupied West Bank, killing one citizen, injuring several more and setting fire to dozens of vehicles, homes and vast tracts of cultivated land.
Israeli colonial settlers have recently stepped up their attacks against the Palestinian people and their property in the occupied West Bank, under the protection of the Israeli occupation army.
Nearly 700,000 Israeli colonial settlers now live in more than 250 illegal settlements and outposts across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem in violation of international law.
