NABLUS, Tuesday, May 24, 2022 (WAFA) – An infant was last night seriously hurt when Israeli settlers attacked his parent’s car while driving on a road in the north of the occupied West Bank and spraying the family with pepper gas, according to a local official.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official, said settlers attacked Palestinian commuters on a road linking Jenin and Nablus districts and pepper-spraying one of the cars causing the infant to suffocate.

The infant was rushed to the hospital where he was reported in serious condition.

Settlers, protected by soldiers, regularly attack Palestinian commuters and villages in the occupied territories. Despite the damage and injuries they cause, no one is prosecuted or even arrested while Palestinians who throw stones at Israeli cars are quickly arrested, sometimes even shot, and sentenced to long prison terms.
