B.M | DOP -

Israeli settlers attacked and injured a Palestinian youth in Burin village, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus on Friday, February 17, 2023.

According to Ahmed Jabril, head of the Red Crescent’s Emergency Department in Nablus, reported that Palestinian youth Mohammed Gharib suffered bruises after he was attacked by Israeli settlers.

Jabril added that settlers attacked Gharib after a car accident happened near the entrance of the Yitzhar Israeli settlement built on the Palestinian lands in occupied Nablus.

About 700,000 Israeli settlers live currently in more than 200 settlements built on Palestinian land considered illegal under international law.

Palestinian figures showed that Israeli forces and settlers carried out about 700 attacks against Palestinians and their properties in the occupied West Bank.

The attacks included assaulting Palestinians, uprooting trees, razing lands, seizing properties, burning and vandalizing vehicles, and closing roads.
