Rateb Jabour, a local Palestinian official monitoring settler attacks in the area, told WAFA that a group of army-guarded Israeli fanatic settlers assaulted Palestinian civilians and shepherds in the village and in the neighboring hamlets of Al-Thaala and Al-Kharruba, causing bruises to some of them.
Israeli Jewish settler groups have promised to pay 25,000 shekels ($7,000) to any settler who slaughters a sheep inside the grounds of Al-Aqsa Mosque and 2,500 shekels ($700) to those detained for attempting to take a sheep inside the holy site during the Passover festival.
Mohammad Rabaee, head of the Al-Tuwani village council, told WAFA that a group of army-guarded Israeli settlers assaulted Palestinian civilians near the village and blocked their access into their own lands, a week after Israeli settlers cut off scores of centuries-old olive trees in the village belonging to local Palestinian farmers.
He told WAFA that fanatic settler groups hurled stones and partially damaged at least 120 vehicles on roads, while they set on fire six vehicles completely damaging them. At least 22 Palestinian-owned shops were attacked by settlers in the town of Huwwara.
"A group of settlers established a settlement outpost on the lands of Jureesh town, south of Nablus," Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Anadolu.
The Jordan-run Islamic Waqf Department, in charge of the holy site, said scores of Israeli settlers entered the compound through the Moroccan Gate in groups and performed rituals and Talmudic prayers there under the protection of Israeli police officers.
