Four injured in Israeli settler attack on the village of Kafr Addik

Sept. 28, 2008 9:13 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 28, 2008 9:13 A.M.)
Salfit - Ma'an - Four Palestinians were injured after a group of Israeli settlers entered the village of Kafr Addik, attacking cars and firing into the air according to the Al-Haq foundation for human rights.

As settlers continued to roam the village armed with guns, Israeli forces imposed a curfew on the area rather than taking the settlers out by force.

Villagers reported hearing periodic gunshots, and were further attacked by the Israeli army as they threw poisonous tear gas and light bombs into the village to disperse Palestinian residents who rushed to defend their homes against the band of settlers.

Al-Haq identified two of the victims as 14-year-old Abdul-Aziz Iyad, whose hand was broken after he was shot with a rubber-coated rubber bullet, and 27-year-old Abdul-Rahim Hussein who was run over by a military jeep and remains in hospital. The identities of the other injured Palestinians are unknown.

It is believed that the settler attack came as a 'retaliation' for the injuries one settler sustained on Saturday morning in his car en route to the nearby Ale Zahav settlement. The settler sustained light injuries after his car was hit with a bullet shot by a Palestinian gunman.
