Settlers storm Palestinian villages as Israeli army steps up attacks
The settlers stormed Wadi al-Dalb and the village of Dayr Ibzi', west of the city, vandalising Palestinian property, chanting racist slogans, and threatening locals, security sources told Palestinian Authority's news agency Wafa.
The raids come as the Israeli army intensified its attacks on Palestinian towns and cities in the occupied West Bank.
On Tuesday, the Israeli army killed six Palestinians and injured dozens more during raids that took place throughout the day.
The Palestinian health ministry on Tuesday morning initially reported three dead and 19 wounded in Nablus, three of them seriously.
Later statements said that two more Palestinians had died in Nablus, while another Palestinian was also killed in overnight clashes near Ramallah.
The Israeli army said it had carried out a vast operation in the occupied territories targeting a site "used by the main operatives of the "Lion's Den", an armed resistance group active in the West Bank.
The West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip held a general strike to condemn the Israeli violence.
