Israeli settlers Sunday attacked Palestinian-owned houses in the village of Burqa, northwest of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, sources said. Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Ban, said that a group of settlers sneaked from the illegal formerly evicted settlement of Homesh under protection from Israeli forces and attacked citizens’ houses in several areas in the village. He added that confrontations broke out after villagers fought off the settlers. One Palestinian was injured after he was hit with a gas canister in his hand, while dozens of others suffered from suffocation due to inhaling toxic gas. Daghlas noted that about 50 settlers stoned a house located on the outskirts of the village and broke the windshield of three vehicles.
