In video - Dozens of Israeli settlers storm Urif, attack Palestinians

Dozens of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar stormed the Urif village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, overnight on Thursday.

Head of Urif village council, Mazen Shehadeh, told Ma'an that heavily armed Israeli forces provided protection to dozens of Israeli settlers as they stormed the village and attacked Palestinian residents.

Shehadeh added that Israeli forces repeatedly fired tear-gas bombs towards Palestinian residents under the pretext that “unknown individuals” stole sheep from the illegal Yitzhar settlement.

Shehadeh also confirmed that Israeli settlers vandalized one Palestinian-owned vehicle, belonging to Urif resident, Muataz Najeh al-Safdi.
Over 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
