Israeli settlers assault elderly near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, Sunday, November 22, 2020 (WAFA) – Fanatic Israeli settlers assaulted today a Palestinian elderly and his son in the hamlet of Shushahla, to the south of the city of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to a local source.

Muhannad Salah, a local resident, said he was grazing livestock with his elderly father when armed Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Eliazar threw rocks at them in an attempt to force them out of their land. He said local residents were able to fend off the attack.

Salah pointed out that Israeli occupation forces and settlers repeatedly target the hamlet aiming to empty it of its few residents for the benefit of the colonial Israeli settlement enterprise.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Susya assaulted a number of Palestinians as they were trying to kick settlers out of their lands, in the village of Susya, in the southern West Bank district of Hebron.
