BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian laborer was attacked on Friday at work in Betar Illit settlement near Bethlehem, medics said.

Khaled Hussein Hamamra, 40, sustained facial wounds after a settler attacked him with a sharp tool, said Abdul Halim Jaafra, head of the Red Crescent's Bethlehem office.

Jaafra told Ma'an the ambulance service was notified of Hamamra's injuries by Israeli liaison officials.

He said a Red Crescent ambulance entered the settlement to treat Hamamra, accompanied by Israeli police.

Hamamra was taken to the Beit Jala Government Hospital.
