Illegal Israeli settlers, on Saturday, attacked Palestinian farmers, injuring one, and vandalized four vehicles in the central occupied West Bank town of Turmus Ayya, north of Ramallah, local sources reported.
The Palestinian farmers, who were harvesting their olives on their own lands east of the town, were attacked by 20 Israeli colonists from a nearby settlement, built on expropriated Palestinian lands.
Local activist, Awad Abu Samra, told the Palestinian News and Information Agency (WAFA) that the 20 colonizers broke windows, punctured tires and set fire to one Palestinian-owned vehicle, damaging four vehicles.
One of the illegal settlers sprayed a Palestinian farmer in the face with pepper spray, causing him burns and requiring him to receive medical attention.
Furthermore, 400 illegal colonizers, accompanied by soldiers, invaded Palestinian lands near Wad Rahhal village, south of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, and installed mobile homes.
