Israeli Settlers Stone Palestinians Vehicles on Ramallah-Nablus Road

RAMALLAH, April 4, 2016 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Monday hurled stones at Palestinians’ vehicles traveling on the Ramallah-Nablus main road, breaking the windshield of one vehicle and disturbing families.

WAFA correspondent said the settlers were identified as from the illegal Eli settlement built on the land of al-Libban al-Sharqiah south of Nablus.

B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights organization, confirmed that Israeli settlers have perpetrated various forms of violence against Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, damaging their lands and their property.

Such acts, which are carried out under the slogan ‘price tag’ include the “blocking of roads, throwing stones at cars and houses, making incursions into Palestinian villages and land, torching fields, uprooting trees, and other damage to property.”

Rather than restricting violent settlers, Israeli army forces impose restrictions on the Palestinians by either blocking the road or forcing Palestinians bypass roads.
