80-year-old attacked by settlers may need surgery

TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- An 80-year-old Palestinian farmer who was attacked Friday by Israeli settlers is still in hospital and may need surgery, medics said Sunday.

Hasan Barhoush is being treated for fractures and bruises at Thabit Thabit Hospital in Tulkarem.

He was working on his fields in Kafr al-Labad village, near the Israeli settlement Enav, when a group of settlers attacked him.

Walid Shalabi, deputy director of the Palestinian military liaison department, visited Barhoush in hospital on Sunday.

Shalabi told reporters his department was in contact with Israeli officials to urge Israeli forces to fight "such violations of all international laws and values."

Israeli perpetrators of violence against Palestinians are rarely investigated or prosecuted.

"When Israelis harm Palestinians, the authorities implement an undeclared policy of forgiveness, compromise, and leniency in punishment," the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem says. "Israeli security forces have done little to prevent settler violence or to arrest offenders."
