Palestinian man attacked, injured by settlers south of Nablus

Colonial Israeli settlers last night attacked a Palestinian truck driver and injured him near the town of Huwara, to the south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to family and Palestinian security sources.

A group of Israeli Jewish settlers from the colonial Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, under the protection of Israeli forces, pelted stones at Munjid Jameel Al-Sheikh Ibrahim, 51, as he was driving his truck near Huwara, said the sources. The assault resulted in him sustaining injuries and bruises across his body.

The truck driver is a resident of Kafr Ra’i town in the northern West Bank governorate of Jenin.

Palestinian communities often report cases of harassment, assaults, and property damage attributed to Israeli settler groups, with protection and political cover for assailants from the far-right Israeli government and complicit Israeli forces.

The incident highlights the ongoing challenges faced by Palestinians living in proximity to Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
