Dozens of Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles, on Thursday, the Huwwara road near the junction of the illegal Jewish settlement of Yizthar, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.
The Mayor of Huwwara, Nasser al-Huwwari, said that one Palestinian suffered injuries during the attack due to Jewish settlers showering the Palestinian vehicles with rocks.

Sources confirmed that the clashes led to dozens of Palestinians suffering from tear-gas inhalation.
Palestinian towns and villages in the Nablus area are surrounded by Jewish settlements and outposts, many of which are protected by the Israeli military and have gained notoriety for being comprised of the most extremist settlers.
