NABLUS, (PIC)– Hundreds of armed Jewish settlers attacked at midnight Saturday Palestinian homes in Hawara village, south of Nablus city.

Eyewitnesses told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that the settlers went on the rampage through the villages damaging property, assaulting residents, burning cars and throwing stones at everything.

Consequently, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) closed road 60 between Ramallah and Nablus.

The PIC reporter said the villagers in Hawara and nearby villages used the speakers of mosques to urge the Palestinians to defend their homes and property against settlers’ attacks, which were described as the most violent since a long time.

Hundreds of villagers stood up for themselves using stones and sticks to confront the armed settlers who were escorted by some Israeli troops. The size of damage and injuries is still unknown.

Other extremist settlers attacked Palestinian cars passing near Ofer settlement, east of Ramallah, on the road between Nablus and occupied Jerusalem.

The cities of Bethlehem and Al-Khalil also witnessed similar savage attacks by Jewish settlers.

A group of settlers under military protection attacked on Saturday morning Palestinian homes near Rumeida neighborhood in Al-Khalil city.

Samaan Abu Haikal said that armed settlers hurled stones at his daughters and threatened Palestinians that they would be shot dead if they left their homes.

In the Laban souk near Ibrahimi Mosque, other settlers severely beat a Palestinian citizen called Sufiyan Abu Asneineh as he was on his way to the Mosque for prayer.

A number of female settlers also marched in the heart of Al-Khalil city chanting racist slurs against Arabs and threatening them with death.

Settlers from Kiryat Arba distributed leaflets in Arabic language saying that they would kill Arabs to avenge the killing of settlers in Nablus.
