NABLUS (Ma’an) — Settlers raided a Nablus-district village overnight Thursday, sparking clashes with residents, a PA official said.

Dozens of Israelis from Yitzhar settlement threw stones at a number of homes in Burin, Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an. No injuries have been reported.

They smashed car windows on the main road from the Jewish-only settlement, he added.

Youth from Burin gathered at the home of Ayman Sufan after it came under attack, and clashed with the group of settlers, Daghlas said.

On Jan. 7, residents of the illegal Bracha settlement raided Burin village, threw rocks and glass bottles at locals and attacked homes.

Settler attacks in the West Bank against Palestinians increased by more than 50 percent in 2011, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
