Settlers attack, injure 2 Palestinians near Nablus

Feb. 28, 2014 5:41 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 28, 2014 10:44 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of 20 settlers attacked two Palestinians in the Nablus village of Huwwara on Friday, locals said.

Settlers hit Ahmad Awda, 35, and Fuad Daoud Awda, 55, with an iron rod, causing severe bruising.

Fuad's leg was broken during the attack and both men were taken for treatment in a Nablus hospital.

In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police do not lead to an indictment.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
