On Monday, extremist settlers from the settlements of Yitzhar attacked the Palestinian village of Asireh al-Qibliya, south of Nablus.
Local sources said that a number of settlers came from one of Yitzhar, surrounded three houses and threw stones into the windows. Settlers also broke the windows of some nearby vehicles and tried to burn others.
The villages south of Nablus, including Asireh and Tell, are regularly attacked by settlers from Yitzhar and Har Bracha, which are considered to be some of the most radical settlements in the West Bank.
The head of the Yizthar yeshiva, Yitzhak Shapira, is the author of the King’s Torah, a controversial book which says killing the children of non-Jews is religiously permissible and even encouraged.
The Liebman family of settlers from Yitzhar earlier put $100,000 rewards on Facebook for information leading to the capture of two Palestinian ex-prisoners from Tell, freed in mid-October’s Gilad Shalit deal.
