An armed illegal Israeli colonists attacked, on Tuesday at night, two Palestinians near Jinsafut Palestinian village, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the colonist assaulted the two Palestinians and maced them with pepper-spray.

He added that the two Palestinians have been identified as Wa’el Mashhour Sultan, from Hares village, near Salfit in central West Bank, and Naim Ghanem from Sorra village, west of Nablus, in northern West Bank.

The Palestinians suffered cuts and bruises, before receiving the needed treatment.
