Palestinian sustain wounds in settler attack near Ramallah
A Palestinian Tuesday evening sustained wounds in a settler attack close to al-Mughayyir village, east of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to a local activist.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that a group of settlers hurled rocks towards Palestinian vehicles travelling close to the village, causing damage to a vehicle and wounding a passenger in his eye.
The casualty, a resident of Qusra town, south of Nablus, was rushed to a hospital in Rafidiya for treatment.
Settlers violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
