NABLUS, (PIC)-- A Jewish settler on Tuesday afternoon tried to stab a Palestinian farmer near Qaryut village, south of Nablus city.

Local sources said a settler from Eli settlement attacked farmer Radi Issa, 45, as he was tilling his land as usual in the western party of Qaryut village and tried to stab him with a knife.

The farmer spotted the settlers and walked away leaving his tractor a prey to the settler who savagely ripped its tires.

The sources noted that the settler, named Korn, carried out several attacks on Qaryut villagers and farmers, uprooted their trees and destroyed vast tracts of agricultural land.

In another incident, Jewish extremists renewed their call on their Israeli government to take control over the West Bank in retaliation to the Palestinian reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah factions.

Israel's channel 7 said that leaders of Yesha council, a Zionist umbrella organization of the West Bank settlements, held an urgent meeting on Monday evening to discuss the steps that should be taken to confront the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah.

The council stated that such behavior by the Palestinians relieved Israel from its obligations towards the establishment of the Palestinian state and made it obligated to control all West Bank areas without exception.
