RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinians who appended a group of settlers in the Nablus village of Qusra on Tuesday have sent a stern warning to their attackers, a Palestinian Authority official said Wednesday.

"They managed on Tuesday to defy groups of settlers who assaulted farmers in the village and tried to damage their property," PA media spokesman Ehab Bseiso said.

"They chased them in the fields until they surrounded them in a building under construction before they handed them to Israeli forces through the Palestinian liaison department."

The official said it was a clear case of self defense after living in daily fear that they will be attacked by extremist settlers.

The villagers "brought water to the detained settlers and gave them tissues to mop up their blood," Bseiso said.

However, the incident was also a message to the settlers to say: "stop your assaults on our children and properties, or otherwise you will pay a toll for your criminal acts."

Palestinian security sources told AFP locals had apprehended the settlers, some of whom were masked, after earlier clashes between the sides near Qusra village.

The governor of Nablus, Jibrin al-Bakri, later confirmed that the settlers had been transferred to Israeli military forces via Palestinian liaison officials.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Why hand them over to Israeli authorities? Those settlers should be judged for their criminal act under Palestinian law. They are the intruders. Stop acting like occupied people and start acting as legitimate Palestinians land owners.

I enjoy seeing these photos plastered all over the web. They really do make my day. I hope Palestinian villagers do this more often and send a clear message to the Settler terrorists that if they continue their so-called price-tag attacks, they themselves will be price-tagged with a club to the face.

In February of 2013 the Mayor of Qusra and two dozen of its leading citizens claimed that masked "Settlers" had attacked the village, setting a dozen vehicles on fire and doing considerable damage. The mayor even produced an IDF ID card said to have been dropped by one of the "Jewish thugs." The problem though, is that the maypr and village notables manufactured the entire story, admitting they did so in hopes of spreading propaganda. 11 months later another allegation is made. Hubris.
