RAMALLAH, At least three Palestinians were injured today in attack by hardcore Israeli settles in the village of Kafr Malik, to the east of Ramallah city in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Illegal hardcore settlers, protected by an Israeli army unit, attacked with stones and beat up Palestinian farmers who were plowing their land in the village, injuring three of them. The three were moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
The land where the attack occurred has been facing an imminent threat of confiscation by the Israeli occupation authorities for the benefit of the colonial settlement enterprise.
As a matter of fact, settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention.
