Israeli Colonists and the Occupation Army Attack, Injure Palestinians Across the West Bank

Illegal Israeli settlers, on Saturday and Sunday, shot 3 Palestinians, attacked others, razed lands, and uprooted olive saplings in different parts of the occupied West Bank, local sources reported.

On Sunday evening, a group of illegal colonists assaulted Palestinian civilians while they were present at the water spring near Qaryout village, south of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, the official who monitors settlement activities in the region, told the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) that the settlers attacked, on Sunday, Palestinian citizens, under the full protection of Israeli soldiers.

Daghlas added that the army opened fire with live rounds, tear gas canisters and concussion grenades at those under attack. No injuries were reported.

In the northern Jordan valley, illegal colonists leveled lands in the Khirbat al-Farisiyah area, on Sunday, in a prelude to expanding the nearby outpost.


Aref Daraghmeh, a local human rights activist, told WAFA that settlers razed approximately ten dunams (2.5 acres) of Palestinian-owned lands in the Ahmeer region in Khirbat al-Farisiyah.

Ghassan Daghlas told WAFA that Israeli forces razed, on Sunday, lands south of Nablus, in the northern West Bank village of Burin, according to the official who monitors the Israeli settlement activities in the area.

Illegal colonists uprooted, on Sunday, several Palestinian-owned olive seedlings in the village of Azmout, east of Nablus, according to Ghassan Daghlas.

Daghlas stated to WAFA that settlers tore up 35 olive saplings planted two months ago by the owner, identified as Murad Muhammad Amer.
