NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers set fire to a Palestinian car in the Nablus village of Burin on Tuesday, a Palestinian Authority official said.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, said that settlers from the notorious Yizhar settlement set fire to a car belonging to Abdul-Athim Shehadah at the entrance to Burin village.
Shehadah has been the victim of 13 settler attacks since 2000, Daghlas added.
Settlers in the occupied West Bank routinely attack Palestinians and their property.
Israeli forces often impose restrictions on Palestinians following settler violence, and the perpetrators are rarely prosecuted for their crimes.
