Jewish settlers have escalated their attacks on Palestinians across the occupied West Bank, Al-Resalah newspaper reported yesterday.
Palestinian journalists Christine Rinwai tweeted: “Pay attention while you are driving along the roads. Israeli settler gangs have just thrown large stones at me near one of the checkpoints north of Al-Bireh and broke my car’s windscreen.”
Christine added: “Settler gangs are closing streets and throwing stones at vehicles. They placed spike strips to puncture the tyres of Palestinian vehicles. They are doing this everywhere Palestinians exist.”
Meanwhile, anti-settlement activist Ghassan Daglas said: “The settlers threw stones at Palestinian vehicles as they passed through Zaatrah and Huwwarah checkpoints, north of Nablus.”
Daglas added: “A group of settlers attacked Palestinians vehicles at Beit El checkpoint – the northern entrance of the cities of Al-Bireh and Ramallah.”
Videos posted on social media showed settlers attacking Palestinians in several locations.
