A number of fanatic illegal Israeli colonists attacked, on Thursday at dawn, two young Palestinian men in Huwwara town, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the colonists chased and assaulted the two Palestinians, identified as Wa’ad Khammous and Salah Lufti.

He added that the two young men suffered various cuts and bruises, before the soldiers briefly detained them.

Palestinian medics rushed to the scene and managed to take the two young men to a local hospital, suffering moderate injuries.
