NABLUS, Monday, October 03, 2022 (WAFA) – Six Palestinians Monday night sustained injuries in a settler attack in Huwara town, south of Nablus city, according to medical sources.
Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency and Ambulance Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said that PRCS medics provided treatment to two casualties with bruises and four others suffering from tear gas suffocation.
Among the casualties, he added, there was a 17-year-old girl, who was assaulted by the settler.
Meanwhile, settlers rampaged at the main street near Yitzhar colonial settlement and attacked an ambulance, pelting it with stones and smashing its windows.
No injuries were reported though.
Yitzhar is notorious for its hardcore Jewish settler community who in the past committed several attacks against Palestinians and their property, including arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
