Palestinian medical sources have reported that a man was seriously injured, on Saturday evening, after a group of fanatic illegal Israeli colonists invaded the as-Sawiya village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and attacked him and his son.

Morad Abu Rad, the head of as-Sawiya Village Council, said the colonists attacked Abdul-Jawad Mohammad Hamed Khalil, 62, and struck him on the head as well as several parts of his body, causing serious wounds.

He added that the colonists also attacked Mohammad’s son, Nizar, wounding him, before the two were rushed to a local hospital.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers used batons and rocks in attacking the two Palestinians, while working on their own lands in Harayeq Rayyan area, in the village, which is subject to constant invasions and violations.

The Israeli assailants came from Rahalim illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.

In related news, several colonists invaded Burin village, southwest of Nablus, and tried to attack homes, but the locals managed to intercept them and forced them away.
