Israeli raises funds for West Bank village:


An Israeli-led crowdfundi­ng campaign has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Palestinia­n residents of a West Bank town that was set ablaze by radical Jewish settlers, the drive’s organizer said Thursday. Some 12,000 Israelis have donated nearly $465,000 since the campaign began this week. Scores of Israeli settlers went on a violent rampage in the West Bank town of Hawara on Sunday, setting dozens of cars and homes on fire after two settlers were killed by a Palestinia­n gunman there earlier in the day. One Palestinia­n was killed by Israeli fire during the incident, the Palestinia­n Health Ministry said. Israeli activist Yaya Fink launched the fundraisin­g drive.
