Colonial “#israeli” squatters set fire to lands owned by #Palestinian citizens in the occupied #WestBank village of Burin, last night. #Act4Palestine #FlyTheFlag of #Palestine #FreePalestine 🇵🇸
In an official statement, the Israel Defense Forces [IDF] identified the arsonists as Palestinians (originally in Hebrew):
Yesterday night, a number of Palestinians set fire in an area near the Har Bracha settlement in the Samaria Regional Brigade area. Following the fire, a violent confrontation ensued at the site between settlers from the area and the arsonists. IDF observations spotted the arsonists and IDF forces called to the area to put out the fire and arrest the arsonists. IDF forces continue to search the area for those suspected of setting the fire.
On May 5, 2021 The Jerusalem Post reported:
The Samaria Regional Council plans to sue the left-wing NGO B’Tselem for slander after it alleged that settlers from Yitzhar had set fire to fields near the Palestinian village of Burin… The IDF told The Jerusalem Post it had evidence that Palestinians had ignited the fields. It added that when settlers arrived to douse the flames altercations broke out between Palestinians and settlers.
