Days of Palestine – Nablus
An armed Israeli settler Sunday attacked and injured a Palestinian farmer while working in his land in Asira al-Qiblya village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to local sources.
They said the settler, who is the security guard of the illegal Yitzhar settlement, attacked Usama Hamdan and caused him bruises all over his body.
Hamdan was admitted to hospital in Nablus as a result, said the sources.
Settler violence is a frequent and ongoing affliction of the Palestinian population of the West Bank.
