NABLUS, Wednesday, March 30, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian man Tuesday evening sustained injuries in a settler attack near Burqa village, north of Nablus, according to medical sources.
Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Palestinian Red Crescent Emergency and Ambulance Department said that the 41-year-old man was rushed by an Israeli ambulance to PRC medics and subsequently received treatment after he was brutally attacked by settlers near the colonial settlement of Shavei Shomron, near the village.
Jibril added that the casualty, a resident of Sebastia town, sustained hand fractures.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settler violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
