Israeli Settlers And Soldiers Attack Palestinians Near Nablus: 10 Palestinians, 1 Settler Injured
According to local sources, a large group of armed Israeli settlers invaded Qusra village, near the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank, on Monday, and began uprooting olive trees, throwing stones and firing live ammunition at Palestinian farmers. Palestinian youth threw stones at the settlers, and the Israeli army then attacked the youth with live ammunition, injuring ten, three seriously.
This attack is just the latest in a series of recent violations by Israeli settlers, who uprooted 500 olive trees from village land last week and vowed to attack and "remove" Palestinians from their ancestral home, in an attempt to further expand an illegal Israeli settlement located on village land.
