NABLUS, (PIC)– Locals in recently targeted Qusra village, south of Nablus, managed to repel a Jewish settler attack on the Monday night.

The youths managed to repel a planned attack and chase down the assailants upon trying to enter the village from the south using the shadows of houses, said Hani Abu Reida, head of the village’s local council.

The civilian defense mission was operating in the framework of popular committee organized by the Qusra municipality after settlers set fire to the village’s main mosque Al-Nourein last week, Abu Reida said, adding that the municipality supplied them with food, drink, and means of communication.

Abu Reida called on other village councils where settler attacks are frequent to form similar councils in an effort to maintain security of Palestinians in the West Bank
