JENIN (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Israeli settlers gathered on a main road in the northern West Bank on Monday and hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that settlers arrived in buses to an intersection near the town of Yaabad near Jenin. Under guard by Israeli troops, the settlers climbed a hill and began to hurl stones at Palestinian vehicles.

While throwing the rocks, the settlers chanted "Death to Arabs," witnesses said.

The stones smashed through the windshields of several Palestinian vehicles as soldiers stood by, locals told Ma'an.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank is largely ignored by Israeli authorities, who rarely intervene in the violent attacks or prosecute the perpetrators.

In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

#1 Good question, JoeUSA. They're either peasants from Russia or nutcases from Brooklyn so maybe the bizarre 613 commandments they observe (not 10...613!) revealed (orally) to Moses (wink, wink) have something to do with it. I think their s***** behaviour is grounded in religion...and Zionism, its monstrous offspring. To us it's just being a s*** and a bully. To them it's an expression of entitlement and a mindset of utter self-absorption derived directly from religion. And the more backward,

(contd.) the more fundamentalist and the more Halakha, the Law of Moses and the rulings of the Rabbis, inc. the weird Mitzvot take precedence over modern, secular law. It's not pretty, but tormenting defenseless Palestinians would seem to be an observant, religious act.
