On Tuesday, the Maan News Agency quoted the Israeli army claiming that an Israeli colonialist settler was injured after being stabbed in the Al-Fondoq Palestinian town east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli man, 55, went to the village for shopping before he was stabbed in the stomach and suffered moderate wounds. He was moved to an Israeli medical center.
