JENIN, Friday, February 12, 2021 (WAFA) - Hardcore Israeli settlers today assaulted, beat up and injured two Palestinian women outside the abandoned Israeli settlement of Homesh, south of Jenin in the north of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Ghassan Daghlas, an official in charge of monitoring settlement activities in the area, told WAFA that a group of settlers who were making a provocative visit to the abandoned settlement of Homesh surprised the two women, attacked them with stones and beat them up, causing them moderate bruises.
The two women are residents of the nearby village of Fandaqumiya.
Violence and vandalism by Israeli settlers is commonplace in the occupied West Bank, and is never prosecuted by the occupation authorities.
Attacks by settlers against Palestinians particularly intensified during the last few months, with Israeli occupation army turning a blind eye to the violence spree and providing the settlers with protection.
