RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA) - A delegation of European ambassadors and consuls on Friday visited Palestinian towns in the occupied West Bank that were subjected to violence by Israeli settlers on Sunday.

EU representative Sven Kuhn von Burgsdorff headed the delegation comprising about 20 ambassadors and consuls.

The delegations visited the towns of Huwara, Zatara and Burin in Nablus.

The delegation offered condolences to the family of Palestinian, Sameh Aktash, who was killed during acts of violence carried out by the settlers.

Speaking to reporters, Kuhn von Burgsdorff demanded that all those who committed these crimes be held accountable.

Dozens of Israeli settlers attacked the Palestinian town of Huwara on Sunday and set fire to several Palestinian homes and vehicles. A Palestinian was killed in the attack.

The violence followed the killing of two Israeli settlers in a shooting in the town.

At least 66 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since the start of the year, according to Palestinian figures. Twelve Israelis were also killed in attacks by Palestinians.
