NABLUS, (PIC)– Jewish settlers set alight tens of dunums in the Palestinian village of Jallud in the Nablus province completely damaging 150 dunums of land lots.

Ghassan Daghlas, the head of the anti-settlement activity north of the West Bank, said that the settlers set on fire cultivated fields.

He said that the blaze raged for hours before the Palestinian fire brigades managed to extinguish it, noting that the land owners have suffered big material losses.

Meanwhile, dozens of Jewish settlers stormed the village of Awarta, southeast of Nablus, at dawn Monday and performed Talmudic rituals at alleged shrines.

The Israeli occupation forces in 15 armored vehicles provided protection for the settlers who offered the rituals at three “shrines” then left the village before dawn prayers.
