A group of extremist Israeli Jewish settlers raided and vandalised the Palestinian town of Huwara in the south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

The settlers, Quds Press reported, attacked Palestinian homes and vandalised about 20 vehicles.

Palestinian youths tried to chase the settlers away but they opened fire at them; no casualties were reported.

Israeli TV Channel 13 reported that scores of "extremist" settlers raided the village of Huwara and damaged several vehicles.

They threw stones at houses and vehicles and caused light damage, the Israeli station added.
