Israeli colonialist settlers, illegally squatting on Palestinian lands, attacked late on Thursday at night, a man from Husan village, west of Bethlehem, and stole thousands of Shekels, he carried on him.

Mohammad Sabateen, the head of Husan Village Council, told the WAFA Palestinian News Agency that three colonists assaulted Nader Mustafa Sabateen, 55, and tried to tie him up, apparently to abduct him.

He added that the colonists repeatedly assaulted the man before stealing about 25.000 Shekels he carried on him, and fled the scene when they saw many Palestinians rushing to his aid.
