NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers damaged the car of a Palestinian man from a Nablus-area village early Wednesday, an official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a number of settlers stormed Jalud and "smashed a car" belonging to local resident Riyad Ahmad Hammoud.

The settlers were from the nearby illegal Israeli outpost of Ahiya, Daghlas said.

He did not provide further details about the exact nature of the damages to the car.

Settlers in the occupied West Bank routinely attack Palestinians and their property.

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

Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.

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

Re #1. I think you use the term European loosely. Many of those settler terrorists are AMERICANS.

Maan should cover the incidents of violence against Israelis. On April 1, 2014 Raphael Delarosa was driving away from a building supply store in the French Hill neighborhood of Jerusalem behind the Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital, on the border between Issawiya and French Hill. During the day a 16-17 year Arab youth pelted his vehicle with bricks and rocks smashing his rear windshield and denting the car. Thousands of such attacks happen every year. PA never prosecutes such attacks.

Many of those are settlers are actually soldiers who live in settlements. No one goes in and out of the settlements with the knowledge of the soldiers at their gates.

Zionist squatters are doing the heavy lifting for the Zionist military junta - ethnic cleansing terrorist activities!

#3 Maybe you need a little geography lesson. The French Hill neighborhood of Jerusalem is under the Israeli government's jurisdiction. It is not under PA control...or PA sovereignty. So how exactly do you expect the PA to prosecute Israeli-Arabs of committing the crime you mentioned?
