A group of Israeli settlers on Tuesday afternoon burned vast tracts of Palestinian-owned farmland in al-Sawiya village in the West Bank district of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian activist who documents settler violations in the northern West Bank, said that Jewish settlers from Rahalim Settlement set fire to large areas of Palestinian farmland in al-Sawiya, destroying various crops as well as a large number of olive trees.

Settler attacks on Palestinians and their property are witnessed on almost a daily basis across the occupied West Bank, yet they are rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
