Settlers attack school, water reservoir near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers attacked a school and water reservoir in the Nablus village of Urif early Monday before clashing with local Palestinians, a PA official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that six settlers from Yizhar tried to damage an electricity box connected to the water structure.

The settlers also attacked a school in the village before Palestinian crowds gathered and clashed with the Israeli extremists.

Israeli forces arrived in the area and fired tear gas at the Palestinians.

In East Jerusalem, a settler assaulted a 12-year female student from Silwan as she was walking to her school in the Old City, official news agency Wafa reported.

Marah Jalajil, 12, was heading to school when a settler kicked her from behind and continued to assault her as she fell to the ground.

The settler fled the scene after several Palestinians rushed to help.

The girl suffered bruising to her head, back and abdomen.
