4 hospitalized after settler attack near Ramallah

SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were hospitalized in the northern West Bank after they were attacked by Israeli settlers near Ramallah on Saturday, locals told Ma'an.

Salfit residents said the two men and two women were picking tumbleweed near Mikhmas junction outside Ramallah, when a group of young Israelis approached them.

The settlers beat the group with batons and metal chains, locals said. Raja Sabri Al-Zeer, whose right arm and left fingers were broken, will undergo surgery in Salfit hospital, medics said.

Ahmad Moharram Al-Zeer, who suffered head injuries, Lamya Fathi Hussain Al-Zeer, who was severely bruised, and Hasan Saleem Al-Aridi who suffered medium bruising, were also transferred to the hospital.

Also on Saturday, a Palestinian farmer from Beit Ummar and his family were pelted with stones by masked Israelis from a nearby settlement on Saturday, a local spokesman said.

Settler violence against Palestinians is on the rise. In 2011, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported that settler attacks had increased by 50 percent over the previous year.
