Israeli settlers have torched the tent of a Palestinian Bedouin family in the occupied West Bank, only days after another arson attack killed a toddler and his father. Officials say a group of settlers threw flammable material on the tent in a village, northeast of Ramallah. No one got hurt in the Wednesday night attack, but all the belongings of the Bedouins were burnt to ashes. The extremists also spray painted graffiti on a stone, reading ADMINISTRATIVE REVENGE. It appears to be in reference to the administrative detention of three Israeli settlers in the wake of July 31 arson attack in the West Bank village of Duma. Settler attacks on Palestinians and their property have become more frequent in recent weeks. Palestinian officials have recorded more than eleven-thousand of such incidents since 2004.
