Days Of Palestine - Nablus

Two Palestinians were Thursday injured after they were attacked by Israeli settlers in the town of Yatma, to the south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told WAFA that settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Rahalim threw rocks at the family home of Mohammad Snobar, which resulted in injuring two members of the family, one received a fractured leg and the other cuts in the head.

Last week, a large number of settlers hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles travelling along the road connecting the cities of Nablus and Qalqilya.

They also sneaked their way into Burin village in an attempt to attack the villagers’ houses, but their attack was fended off.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
