Israeli settler terrorized at dawn today Palestinian civilians in the town of Hawwara, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, when they attacked with stones homes on the outskirts of the town, according to a local official.
Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, said settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar sneaked into the western parts of the town and throw rocks at the homes when people were still asleep causing panic and fear, particularly among children.
He said the residents confronted the settlers and drove them away before causing any serious damage or injuries.
Yitzhar settlers regularly attack Palestinian homes and civilians in the town of Hawwara and burn their vehicles. They often block main roads in the town while the Israeli army watches and provides cover and protection to the settlers.
