BETHLEHEM/JENIN, Monday, December 21, 2020 (WAFA) - Israeli settlers attacked Palestinians in two separate incidents in the West Bank districts of Bethlehem and Nablus, according to local and security sources.

A group of Israeli settlers, under Israeli army protection, closed off the bypass road connecting the northern and southern West Bank and attacked Palestinian vehicles traveling near the town of Janata, east of Bethlehem, in the southern West Bank. No injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, another group of settlers attacked a Palestinian man near Deir Sharaf in Nablus, causing him injuries that necessitated his transfer to the hospital for treatment, according to Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank.

He said forces also closed Za'atara military checkpoint to the south of Nablus, amid the heavy presence of settlers on roads, warning Palestinians to stay alert to possible settlers' attacks against them and their properties.
