Jewish settlers set fire to dozens of dunums of Palestinian farmland in Jalud village, south of Nablus.
Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told WAFA that a number of Jewish settlers set fire to the villagers’ farmlands, destroying their olive orchards.

The settlers came from illegal settlements of Adi Ad and Achia, which are inhabited by hardcore fanatic Jews.
Daghlas added that the Palestinian villagers rushed to their orchards to put out the fire.

Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have repeatedly blamed Israel for fostering a “culture of impunity” for Jewish settlers committing violent acts against Palestinians.
“Price tag” refers to an underground anti-Palestinian Israeli group that routinely attacks Palestinians in the occupied territories and inside Israel.

The Israeli government still refuses to label it as a terrorist organization and considers it only as groups of vandals. It also considers such acts as hate crimes against Palestinians.
Over 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
