NABLUS, June 7, 2012 (WAFA) –Jewish settlers Thursday rampaged throughout the West Bank, attacking Palestinians and stealing property, according to local sources.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank said a group of settlers from the illegal settlement of Gilad set up ambushes for Palestinian vehicles travelling on a main road near the town of Howara, south of Nablus, attacking and stoning them.
Ratib al-Jabour, coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in southern West Bank city of Hebron, told WAFA that settlers from the illegal settlements of Maon and Havat Maon attacked Palestinian shepherds and farmers east of the town of Yatta, south of Hebron, and prevented them from harvesting their crops of wheat and barley and from replanting the trees the settles had cut down a few days ago.
Meanwhile, coordinator of the National Committee against the Apartheid Wall, Ahmad Salah, told WAFA that a number of settlers from the illegal settlement of Eliezer removed and stole metal bars marking borders of land in the village of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem, in addition to stealing the barbed wire that surrounded the land.
He said residents found a flyer left by the settlers in their land in which an Israeli settlers group called the Green Berets claimed its responsibility for the damage caused to the land.
