NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli settlers attacked on Monday evening Palestinian citizens on the road reopened by the occupation authorities near Nablus after being closed for 13 years.
Hamza Diriya, member of the Committee for the Defense of Aqraba lands, confirmed that a group of Israeli settlers has attacked Palestinian citizens on Monday while passing through the road, where they smashed their vehicles’ windscreens.
He pointed out that the settlers have previously attacked Palestinian farmers and prevented them from having access to their lands.
The Palestinian activist has warned earlier against the settlers’ attacks in the area protesting the re-opening of the road to Palestinian villagers in an attempt to prevent them from reaching their agricultural lands.
The road had been closed by the Israeli military for the past 13 years, which compelled the villagers to take a difficult, circuitous route in order to reach the city of Nablus.
