Dozens of settlers threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles near Tapuach Junction and torched agricultural fields in an area in the northern West Bank Monday night, Palestinian News Agency Maan reported.

The event left dozens of Palestinian cars damaged, according to the report, which also stated 20,000 dunams of produce trees were damaged when settlers set fire to fields in the village of Burin.

Last Tuesday an Israeli man was stabbed to death in a terror attack at the Tapuach Junction, in the first lethal terror attack in the West Bank since 2011.
