Fanatic Jewish settlers on Tuesday afternoon torched hundreds of dunums of Palestinian agricultural lands in Aqraba town south of Nablus city.
Yousef Deiriyeh, member of the anti-settlement committee in the town, told Quds Press that extremist settlers of Itamar settlement arrived in groups and set fire to lands planted with citrus trees in Ain al-Douweh and Ain al-Jehir areas to the east of the town.
Palestinian firefighting teams could not approach the affected areas as Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) were deployed in the site along with the attacking settlers.
Jewish settlers every now and then carry out similar attacks against the town and its inhabitants under the protection of IOF soldiers.
