RAMALLAH, Tuesday, November 23, 2021 (WAFA) – A 15-year-old Palestinian girl Monday late night sustained injuries after being attacked by Israeli settlers near Turmus Ayya town, north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, sources said.

They said that settlers, under military protection, gathered near the entrance to Turmus Ayya town and hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles in the area, hitting a vehicle and injuring Zain Farraj in the head.

The assailants came from the colonial settlement of Shilo, built on a large swath of Palestinian land belonging to Ramallah and Nablus districts.

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