Settlers assault, hurt two Palestinians near Nablus

NABLUS, Two Palestinians sustained bruises today after they were attacked by illegal Israeli settlers in the village of Huwwara, to the south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to an official.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors illegal settlement activities in the area, told WAFA that extremist settlers physically assaulted and beat up Murad Najjar and Sabe’ Saleem, two local villagers, while they were working in the area.

The two Palestinians sustained bruises as a result of the assault, and were moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property has become a routine practice in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.
