Settlers write racist slogans and burn a bulldozer south Nablus

The attacks came hours after a Palestinian man was shot dead by an Israeli settler

Jewish terrorists believed to be from the “Tag-Mehir” terrorist group set fire to a bulldozer and wrote racist slogans in the village of Burin, south of occupied Nablus, threatening to seek revenge against the Arabs.

According to Palestinian sources, Jewish settlers infiltrated the town which is surrounded by settlements and built on Palestinian land, set fire to a bulldozer and wrote slogans of revenge, as well as drawing the Jewish Star of David.

According to Israel’s Channel 2, the settlers wrote the racist slogans and drew a Star of David in the town of Kifl Haris near Salfit, north of Jerusalem.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activities in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, said that the Jewish settlers, terrorists and occupation soldiers targeted the village of Burin.

He also told Quds Press that last night, the settlers set fire to a bulldozer belonging to Palestinian Abdul Azim Idris.

He added that the attacks take place under the protection of the occupation soldiers, explaining that the settlers carry out attacks and thuggery against Palestinians and their property during the day, while the occupation soldiers carry out raids and arrests against Palestinians at night.
