Settlers injure Ramallah woman

March 31, 2011 3:16 P.M. (Updated: April 1, 2011 9:45 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers threw stones Wednesday at a 36-year-old woman driving between Ramallah and Birzeit, who was later hospitalized.

The woman, identified as Rula Al-Qwasmy, suffered broken bones and a concussion, and was transferred to a hospital in Ramallah.

The incident comes amid a continued wave of settler violence targeting Palestinians.

An Israeli decision to evacuate an illegal settler outpost kicked off the violence, with settler groups announcing the inaction of a "price tag" policy, targeting Palestinian communities in retaliation for Israeli military action against their activities. The violence increased when Palestinians were accused of being behind the murder of five members of a settler family in the northern West Bank.

The investigation remains under gag-order in Israel, and suspects have not been formally identified.
