Palestinian man wounded in an assault by settlers south of Hebron

HEBRON, Friday, March 19, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian young man sustained bruises and wounds today when he was physically attacked by Israeli fanatic settlers in the village of Susia, east of the town of Yatta in the south of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Rateb Jabour, a local official in charge of monitoring settler attacks, told WAFA that a group of settlers from the illegal settlement of Susya, named after the same village, physically attacked the young man and beat him up, causing them bruises and wounds across his body and fractures in the foot. He was moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

The village is part of Masafer Yatta, a collection of about 19 nomadic Bedouin hamlets that have been a frequent target of almost daily assaults by the Israeli military and settlers, who wish to empty the area of its indigenous Palestinian population in favor of the colonial settlement enterprise.

Almost everyday, attacks by the Israeli occupation forces or settlers on Palestinians are reported in the area.
