NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian villagers and Israeli settlers clashed on Monday in Beit Furik village east of Nablus.

A PA official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, told Ma’an that dozens of Israeli settlers raided the eastern neighborhood of the village.

He said they attempted to break into houses and throw stones at them.

Villagers then rushed to fend them off, which led to clashes in the area, Daghlas added.

Settler attacks against Palestinians and their property are routine and often happen in the presence of Israeli military forces.

Last Wednesday, a group of settlers set fire to the facade of a mosque in the Salfit village of Deir Istiya and sprayed racist slogans on its walls, local officials said.

The mayor of Deir Istiya, Ayyub Abu Hijlah, told Ma'an that settlers sneaked into the village before dawn prayers and set fire to the main door of the mosque, causing minor damages.
