BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers attempted to set fire to a Bethlehem home overnight Sunday and sprayed racist graffiti on the walls, a local committee said.

Hassan Bargeya, coordinator of the national committee against settlements and the wall, told Ma'an that settlers raided the village of al-Manshiya at around 2.30 a.m. and poured gasoline on a house.

Settlers then attempted to light the petrol but were forced out of the area by villagers who started throwing stones at them, Bargeya said.

The house belongs to Younis Abu Dayyeh.

On Wednesday, settlers uprooted over 100 olive trees and sprayed "Death to Arabs" and "Price Tag" in a Nablus village.

Settler violence against Palestinian communities in the West Bank is routine and rarely stopped by Israeli military authorities on the ground or prosecuted by Israeli courts.

settlers pouring petrol on a Palestinian house at 2:30 am??? I expect those settlers thought the house was empty at the time?? After all they would not act in such a murderous way. Would they?
