The sources said that the settlers hurled stones at the car of Ibrahim Jamil, and added that he and his sons suffered moderate injuries. They were moved to the Rafidia hospital in Nablus; the car was damaged by the attack.

Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the settlements file at the Palestinian Authority in the northern part of the West Bank, stated that the attack is part of frequent and escalating attacks carried out by the settlers against the Palestinians, their lands and their property in the occupied West Bank.

Also on Thursday evening, several extremist settlers invaded the Beit Einoon area, east of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and fired rounds of live ammunition at a number of homes.

Medical sources reported that at least one child suffered an anxiety attack after the settlers fired rounds of live ammunition at her parents home.

On Wednesday evening, dozens of extremist Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian cars at the entrance of Nabi Saleh village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and hurled stones at them.

Settlers also attacked the village leading to clashes with the locals.

Local sources reported that settlers of the “Halamish” illegal settlement, gathered in the area and closed the main road that connects several villages with Ramallah, and hurled stones at dozens of Palestinian cars causing damage.

The settlers later clashed with local youths before Israeli soldiers invaded the village and fired rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets and gas bombs.
