Days of Palestine – Nablus
A Palestinian infant was hurt when a group of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles, on Monday evening, near the Masoudiya area northwest of the city of Nablus in the West Bank.
The official in charge of the settlement file in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, said that “a group of settlers attacked the vehicles of Palestinian citizens on the road between Jenin and Nablus.”
He added: “A resident of Jabaa, Muhammad Fashafsha, south of Jenin, was targeted with pepper gas by Israeli settlers, which led to the suffocation of his infant son.”
“The infant was taken to the hospital, where his condition was described as critical,” he confirmed.
Violence by Israeli settlers toward Palestinians has long since become part of daily life under occupation in the West Bank.
These actions range from blocking roads, throwing stones at cars and houses, raiding villages and farmland, torching fields and olive groves, and damaging crops and property to physical assault, sometimes to the point of hurling Molotov cocktails or using live fire.
Over the years, this widespread violence toward Palestinians has resulted in injuries to life and limb, as well as damage to property and land.
