Several illegal Israeli colonialist settlers attacked, on Monday afternoon, an elderly Palestinian man while working on his land, south of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Eyewitnesses said the colonists invaded Palestinian lands and assaulted a farmer, identified as Abdul-Karim Nimir Younis, 60, while working on his hands in the Khallet Hassan area, south of Qalqilia.

The man suffered several cuts and bruises after the colonists assaulted him, and received treatment by Palestinian medics.

They added that the Israeli soldiers arrived in the area, and abducted Sa’id Isamel Younis, 40, from Sneiria nearby village, while he was trying to save Younis.

In related news, Israeli soldiers invaded the al-Bweib village, northeast of Yatta town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and dismantled four tents, including two housing fifteen Palestinians.

On Monday at dawn, the soldiers abducted at least nine Palestinians, including former political prisoners, from their homes in several parts of the occupied West Bank, including the occupied capital, Jerusalem.
