RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli police detained 13 settlers suspected of attacking a 10-year-old Palestinian boy on Saturday near Ramallah, Israeli media reported.

Bassam Dawood sustained injuries to the head and body which appeared to have been inflicted by metal objects, medics at the Palestine Medical Compound told Ma'an.

He was attacked near the illegal outpost Ramat Migron, they said.

Israeli radio reported that 13 settlers were detained in relation to the assault. The suspects, mostly teenagers, were not responsive to interrogators, according to the report.

Bassam told police he was tending to his sheep when he was attacked by masked assailants.

Separately, 19-year-old Bilal Idreis was moderately injured after a settler ran him over near the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement in eastern Hebron, medics said.
