Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian resident, on Friday morning, beating him severely in the Douma village, south of the West Bank city of Nablus.

Palestinian chief of the file on illegal Israeli settlement activities in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, told media outlets that Israeli colonists assaulted Palestinian civilian, Mohammad Abdelhafeed, 28, causing him some bruises to different parts of his body.

Daghlas confirmed that Abdelhafeed, a resident of the northern Qira village, was transferred to the Rafidia hospital in Nablus. No further details were reported.

In the meantime, colonialist Israeli settlers, on Thursday, placed two caravans on Palestinian-owned land, in Madama village, also south of Nablus city.

Daghlas noted that the illegal colonists were from the Yitzhar colony, located on Palestinian-owned lands.

He further noted that the Palestinian-owned lands, which are adjacent to the Yitzhar settlement, have frequently been exposed to bulldozing and razing, apparently within attempts to expand the illegal settlement.
