Israeli settlers shoot two Palestinians, burn car and throw Molotov cocktails



Israeli settlers have shot two Palestinians during an attack on Monday night in the village of Asira al-Qabliya, located south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, the Wafa news agency reports. The attackers, who came from the Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, also set a car on fire and attacked a home with a Molotov cocktail. No further injuries were reported. In the town of Huwara near Nablus, Israeli settlers also set fire to a vehicle, Wafa reports, while in the Masafer Yatta region, south of Hebron, Israeli settlers also demolished two structures and a sheep pen, uprooted trees and harassed farmers. International outcry at settler violence is growing, with the United Kingdom announcing on Monday sanctions against four people accused of committing human rights abuses against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. There's been a significant surge of settler violence in the occupied territories, since the start of the war in October.
