In response to the detention of colonists in Qusra , colonists set two vehicles alight


  • Violation: Setting two vehicles ablaze
  • Date: 08/01/2014
  • Location: Madama village- Nablus governorate
  • Perpetrators: Colonists of Yitzhar
  • Victims: Two citizens; Hasan Qit and Rami Najjar


On Wednesday, January 08, a gang of radical colonists from Yitzhar known as the "price tag" group raided the West Bank village of Madama in the southern countryside of Nablus. They took advantage of the dark to break into the village where they committed new attacks.

According to the Madama village council, colonists  crossed the public road leading to the village downtown where they used petrol to set two cars on fire. Fortunately, people of the village woke up to the noise and prevented the burning of yet more cars and caused the colonists to run away.

It should be marked that the fire flames ate a Hyundai car that belongs to Hasan Qit while it caused partial damage to a Skoda that is owned by Rami Najjar.

Not satisfied with burning the vehicles only, colonists also sprayed them with price tag slogans that are offensive and enticing. They call for revenge from Qusra and Madama. The attack was in synchronization with the incident of the Palestinians who detained a group of colonists while they were causing damage to olive trees.  


It is worth mentioning that the Israeli occupation army and police are complicit with the price taggers in carrying out attacks against Palestinian villages and farmers. The army and police support and help colonists encouraging them to be more harmful without fearing any legal deterrent.
