Jewish settlers burn Palestinian car, cut trees


RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Jewish settlers burnt a Palestinian car in Laban village to the north of Ramallah and damaged other property in a pre-dawn raid on Thursday, local sources said.

Ghassan Daghlas, monitoring Israeli settlement activity north of the West Bank, said that the settlers wrote insulting slogans against the prophet and provocative slogans against the Palestinians.

He added that other groups of settlers cut an unspecified number of tees in Madma village and 15 olive trees in Burin village.

Daghlass said that the settlers’ attacks escalated with the start of 2012, adding that the Israeli occupation authority gives a blind eye to such attacks.

He said that a state of anger was sweeping the Palestinian villages as a result of those attacks, adding that he expected more such attacks in the near future in view of the stalemate in the political settlement process.
