NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers from the Yitzhar settlement in southern Nablus attempted to assault several Palestinian security officers after they parked their car on the road at the entrance of the settlement on Tuesday.

Zakariya al-Sadda, a human rights activist with Rabbis for Human Rights, told Ma'an that Israeli settlers forced five officers from Palestinian security forces to stop while on their way to Ramallah to take part in a festival celebrating the anniversary of Yasser Arafat’s death

They claimed that the driver attempted to assault a settler who was driving his car on the same road.

Al-Sadda added that the Israeli settlers and Palestinian officers traded verbal assaults.

He added that the Palestinian Liaison Department intervened and solved the issue, and that Israeli forces took the Palestinian officers away from the settlement’s entrance after dozens of settlers gathered and attempted to assault them.
