Two Palestinians injured in an attack by settlers near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, Saturday, January 7, 2023 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians sustained injuries and bruises today in an attack by extremist Israeli settlers on the village of Khallet Nahla, to the south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Hasan Brejeya, a local Palestinian official, told WAFA that a group of settlers hurled stones at homes of Palestinians in the village, injuring two Palestinian residents, including a 55-year-old woman who was injured in her head.

The two were rushed to hospital for medical treatment.

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.
