Settlers and Israeli occupation forces attacked on Sunday, August 27, 2023, the village of Madama, south of Nablus, and fired tear gas canisters toward several Palestinian citizens.
Acting Nablus Governor Ghassan Daghlas reported that the settlers attacked Palestinian homes in the southern area of the village, with the protection of occupation forces who launched sound and tear gas bombs.
As a result, a number of Palestinian citizens suffocated. Daghlas added that the soldiers and settlers attempted to break doors and windows of several houses. This marks the second attack launched by settlers on the village today.
Settler violence against Palestinians is a daily matter in the West Bank. Instead of taking preventive action, the Israeli authorities aid and abet the settlers in harming Palestinians and using their land.
