Colonists Attacks are Unstoppable in Beit Furik – Nablus city

Colonists Attacks are Unstoppable in Beit Furik – Nablus city
Violation: partially torching a house and an SUV.
Date: October 27, 2011.
Perpetrators: Alon Moreh colonists.
Victim: Shahir Hanani.
Location: north Beit Furik.
The colonists’ criminal activities in the West Bank seem to be unstoppable; on October 27, 2011, a group of Alone Moreh colonists raided Beit Furik village. The colonists sneaked into Shahir Hanani house; they cut a gas pipe and started a fire which consumed one of the rooms of the house with all its contents. They also sprayed his Jeep with an inflammable material before setting it alight. The residents managed to put down the fire, getting aid from the neighbors and fire trucks which arrived to the scene.
Shahir Hanani (40) stated to an LRC observer: ‘at around 2:00 am, we were awaken by the sound of an explosion; moments later, we were rocked by the roar of another one. We went out to see what was happening when I saw my Jeep on fire. Moments later, we’ve noticed that one of the back rooms of the house had been completely consumed by flames’.

The colonists herds manage to find new ways to damage Palestinian lives and property; a wide range of aggressions have been recorded throughout the years, cutting trees, burning cars and property, sabotaging, targeting people, especially journalists and medics, among others. Such actions are conducted under the protection, blessing, and probably supervision of the Israeli Occupation Army troops deployed in the area.
Beit Furik has been suffering from organized aggressions organized by Itmar and Alon Moreh colonists; these colonies are inhabited by radical colonists with a mentality driven towards expelling the Palestinians and annihilating their properties, probably their whole existence as well.
