Pregnant woman among four injured in settler attack northeast of Ramallah


RAMALLAH, Friday, September 4, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers late Wednesday attacked a Palestinian vehicle with stones near Turmusayya town, northeast of Ramallah, injuring four passengers, including a pregnant woman, medical sources said.

The sources confirmed that settlers pelted a Palestinian vehicle as it was traveling along the road near the town with stones, injuring four passengers and causing extensive material damage.

The four casualties, including a nine-month pregnant who was seriously injured, were rushed to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah.

They were identified as residents of Kafr Malek, northeast of Ramllah.

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

Settlers' violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

There are almost 834,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
