On Wednesday, a group of colonialist settlers, illegally living on Palestinian lands, west of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, attacked Palestinians while picking their olive trees, wounding one.

Medical sources said the assailants injured Mahmoud Hussein, 22, causing serious cuts and bruises to his face and left hand.

The attack took place in Palestinian orchards in Bizzariya village, northwest of Nablus, and is part of dozens of violations, which escalate during the olive harvest season in the occupied West Bank, and include cutting and uprooting trees, harvesting the trees and stealing the produce, in addition to flooding the lands and orchards with sewage.

On Wednesday evening, a group of settlers attacked three Palestinian homes in Orif village, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

On Monday, a number of extremist Israeli colonialist settlers invaded Palestinian orchards in Deir al-Hatab village, east of Nablus, and attacked villagers picking their olive trees, wounding one.
