2 Palestinians injured by settlers in Nablus

Feb. 23, 2013 3:24 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 25, 2013 11:12 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers shot and injured two Palestinians in the village of Qusra south of Nablus on Saturday in the northern West Bank, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Hilmi Abdul Azizi from Qusra was injured in the stomach, and Khalid Nafed was injured in the foot, after settlers attacked people's houses in the village, the reporter said.

Seven other Palestinians were hurt by tear gas and rubber-coated bullets.

Abdel Majid Hassan, a resident of Qusra village, said the trouble broke out when a group of settlers broke into his home, where he lives with his wife.

"About six or seven settlers came into our house and told us to go into another room," Hassan, 62, said. "After about 10 minutes, residents came to help and the settlers left the house. When the army arrived, settlers began to shoot and throw stones."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said about 25 settlers and 150 Palestinians were throwing stones at each other near the village. "Security forces are responding with riot dispersal means," she said.

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that settlers had opened fire. A Palestinian ambulance driver called to the village said several Palestinians had been taken to hospital to be treated for tear gas inhalation.
