Extremist Israeli settlers "Maniacs" attack Palestinians
West Bank, August 1st, 2009, (Pal Telegraph) -Dozens of extremist Israeli settlers of the Shavot Ami illegal outpost, installed on Palestinian lands west of the southern West Bank of Nablus attacked dozens of Palestinian vehicles and hurled stones at them.
Local sources reported that several vehicles were damaged, but no injuries were reported.
Israeli soldiers and policemen were present in the area but did not attempt to stop the settlers.
Ghassan Douglas, in charge of the settlements file at the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, warned of the severity of these attacks, and added that Friday attack came parallel with a statement issued by settler leaders in the West Bank calling for more violence against the Palestinians and their properties.
Last week, the settlers carried repeated attacks against the residents and their homes especially in areas south west of Nablus.
Douglas called on human rights and legal groups to intervene and stop the attacks.
In July, the settlers carried dozens of attacks against the residents, and burnt olive orchards and vines.
