NABLUS, Friday, January 6, 2023 (WAFA) – A group of Israeli settler fanatics today violently attacked a Palestinian man, causing him bruises, in front of his home in the town of Salem, to the east of Nablus in the north of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Ghassan Daghlas, a local Palestinian activist, told WAFA that scores of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Elon Moreh, nearby, attacked the house of Mohammad Nabil Shtayyeh in the town and physically assaulted and beat him up, causing him bruises.
Shtayyeh was rushed to a hospital for medical treatment following the terror attack.
Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
There are over 600,000 Israeli settlers illegally occupying portions of the West Bank in violation of international law and established norms prohibiting the relocation of the occupying power's civil population to the land of the occupied.
