Medics: Man treated for wounds from settler beating

March 24, 2011 12:16 P.M. (Updated: March 24, 2011 10:23 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- A 30-year-old Nablus man was accosted by a group of settlers Wednesday night, and hospitalized by a subsequent attack, medics reported.

Traveling south of Nablus, Iyad Azzam told Red Crescent medics that he believed residents of the illegal settlement of Yitzhar were behind the attack.

He remains in moderate condition at the Rafidya Hospital in Nablus.

The attack is the latest report of violence carried out by settler against Palestinian civilians.

Since the end of February, seven Palestinians have been injured by settler gunfire, two have been stabbed, two have been beaten, seven have been injured by stones, at least six cars have been torched, and dozens of acts of vandalism and harassment have been reported.

The upticks in settler violence came after Israeli soldiers demolished an illegal outpost built on privately owned Palestinian lands, and in the wake of the brutal murder of five members of a settler family in Itamar, which included the stabbing deaths of two children and an infant. A suspect has yet to be identified by Israeli police, though officials pointed the finger at Palestinian militant groups, who denied involvement.
