A Palestinian man was injured Friday after being beaten by illegal Israeli settlers who broke into the site of abandoned Homesh settlement, south of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank, a Palestinian official reported.

Ghassan Daghlas, a local monitor of illegal settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that Israeli settlers attacked and assaulted local villager, Mustafa Abu Za’bal.

Abu Za’bal, who was working on his farmland near the abandoned settlement of Homesh, suffered minor injuries from the attack, also had his horse stolen by the illegal colonists, according to Daghlas.

In related news, a group of armed Israeli colonists stormed Palestinian-owned farmlands, on Monday, near the illegal Gush Etzion settlement, south of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank.
