TULKARM, Saturday, April 09, 2022 (WAFA) – An elderly Palestinian man was acutely beaten up by a group of Israeli settlers while grazing his sheep outside the village of Kafr al-Labad in the occupied West Bank province of Tulkarm, local sources said.
The settlers, armed with rifles, assaulted and beat up 80-year-old Mahmoud Hussein Fuqaha while grazing his sheep inside his own land, located in the vicinity of the colonial Israeli settlement of Einav.
The 80-year-old man, who sustained fractures and an injury in his left eye, was evacuated to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Violence and vandalism by Israeli settlers are commonplace in the occupied West Bank, and are never prosecuted by the occupation authorities.
Over 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
