3 injured as settlers attack Palestinian cars in northern West Bank

June 14, 2014 1:13 P.M. (Updated: June 14, 2014 4:44 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles traveling on main roads across the northern and central West Bank overnight and on Saturday morning, injuring three people and damaging 15 cars.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that three young Palestinian men sustained injuries after settlers attacked their car with rocks on the main road between the village of Jinsafut and Qalqiliya, west of Nablus.

The sources said that Abd al-Qadir Hussein Samman, Muhammad Abdullah Umran and Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, all in their twenties, were traveling in a private Skoda vehicle when a group of settlers attacked them with stones.

The three were evacuated to Thabit Thabit Hospital in Tulkarem.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settlement-related activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that more than 15 Palestinian vehicles sustained damages near the Israeli settlements of Yitzhar, Eli and Kfar Tappuah between Ramallah and Nablus.

Palestinian security sources and locals added that Israeli forces erected military checkpoints on Wadi Qana road near Salfit in the central West Bank inspecting Palestinian vehicles.

The attacks come a day after the Israeli army said three Jewish settlers had gone missing in the southern West Bank, leading to a major manhunt as Israeli forces raid local villages in order to find the group.

The three went missing in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc, part of a network of Jewish-only settlements that Israel maintains across the occupied West Bank.

More than 500,000 Israelis live in the settlements, which are built on confiscated Palestinian lands or state lands.
