Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles traveling between the northern West Bank cities of Nablus and Jenin, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that settlers hurled stones at vehicles with Palestinian registration plates near the entrance of the former outpost of Homesh, evacuated in 2005, smashing the windshields of some of them.
The UN warned violence by Israeli settlers against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank is increasing — reporting 210 incidents in the first 3 months of 2021.
In 2020, UN says:

Jewish settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
It includes arsons of property and mosques, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only colonial settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
