NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers attacked two Palestinians, on Thursday, while inside a vehicle near the Zaatara checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

According to a relative of the two Palestinians, Uqab Qanna, told Ma'an that his two relatives were driving back home to Kafr Qalil village, when heavily armed Israeli settlers stopped the vehicle some 200 meters away from the Zaatara checkpoint.

Qanna confirmed that after his relatives stopped the vehicle, Israeli settlers began "brutally" kicking and beating them with guns and sticks, causing them severe injuries.

Additionally, settlers smashed and destroyed parts of the vehicle before fleeing the area.

Qanna identified the two attacked Palestinians as Suleiman Idris Qanna, 20, and Yahiya Naim Qanna, 23.

Both of them were immediately taken to the Rafidiya Governmental Hospital near Nablus to receive the necessary medical treatment.

Medical sources confirmed that both Yahiya and Suleiman suffered severe injuries due to the attack; Yahya's injuries included bruises, fractures and an open cut on the side of his head, while Suleiman suffered various bruises all over his body.

Yahiya and Suleiman are reported to be in moderate condition.
