Israeli settlers, on Sunday, attacked a Palestinian-owned vehicle in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, injuring four Palestinians.

According to local Ma’an News Agency sources, Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar attacked a vehicle with stones as it passed on the main road, to the south of Nablus.

Sources confirmed that four Palestinians were injured due to the attack and were immediately transferred to Rafidia hospital in Nablus for treatment.

The four Palestinians reportedly suffered bruises and various cuts as a result of broken glass, their identities unknown.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
