RIYADH: Saudi Arabia categorically rejected and denounced on Thursday recent attacks carried out by Israeli settlers in a number of Palestinian villages in the West Bank.

The ministry expressed the Kingdom’s categorical rejection of acts of intimidation against Palestinian civilians, and renewed its unwavering support for all international efforts to reach a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.

The Kingdom offered its condolences to the families of those killed and wished the injured a speedy recovery.

Israeli forces demolished the house of an alleged Palestinian attacker in Nablus in the occupied West Bank early on Thursday, witnesses and the army said.

On Wednesday, hundreds of Israeli settlers stormed into a Palestinian town in the occupied West Bank, setting fire to dozens of cars and homes to avenge the deaths of four Israelis killed by Palestinian gunmen the previous day, residents said. Palestinians said one man was killed in the violence.
