NABLUS, (PIC)– Hundreds of Jewish settlers stormed the southern Nablus village of Awarta before midnight Tuesday and remained there until dawn Wednesday to tour a number of historical sites.

Local sources told the PIC reporter that the settlers mounted a number of buses and entered the village under heavy Israeli army escort.

They said that the settlers toured a number of sites, which they believe have connection to the Jewish religion, in eastern and central areas in the village.

Sami Awad, the chairman of the Awarta municipal council, said that Nablus governor Jibrin Al-Bakri told him that a number of rabbis would visit the village.

He said that the settlers, including rabbis, arrived in seven buses, adding that the Israeli soldiers mounted rooftops of high buildings in the village. He said that they wrote anti-Arab slogans on walls of those buildings.
