Settlers burn a house in Ramallah


Local Palestinian sources reported that settlers burned, at dawn yesterday, an inhabited house in the town of Sinjil, north of Ramallah.

The Palestinian News and Information Agency (Wafa) quoted the sources as saying, “The targeted house belongs to the Palestinian citizen Ahmed Maher Awashra (35 years old), and it contained six members of his family.”

Awashra said, “His family miraculously escaped death by burning, after incendiary materials were thrown at the house by four settlers who fled, after dozens of townspeople went to the house.”
