Palestine: Group of Israeli settlers attack Palestinian workers

1st Aug 2013

A group of Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian workers in a West Bank village near Nablus on Wednesday, a Palestinian Authority official told Ma’an news agency.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settler activity in the northern West Bank, said that that 15 settlers from the illegal Yizhar settlement attacked laborers in the village of Asira al-Qibliya.

A group of twenty Palestinian workers were building a water tank near the village when they were attacked. Settlers also tried to destroy the water tank, saying it was too close to their settlement, Daghlas said.

On Tuesday, settlers from Yizhar attacked over 15 Palestinian cars at a junction nearby, throwing glass bottles and rocks at vehicles.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank and very rarely face legal consequences.

Annual 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.

Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem are illegal under international law. The continued construction of settler homes is seen as a major obstacle to the creation of a Palestinian state.
