A Palestinian man sustained injuries today in an attack by hardcore Israeli settlers in the village of Al-Khader, to the south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Settlers attacked Ahmad Saeed Sbeih, 39 years old, and physically assaulted him while working in his own land, causing him bruises across his body. He was moved to nearby Beit Jala Public Hospital for medical treatment.
Attacks bu Israeli settlers against Palestinians and their property is commonplace in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.
Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only colonial settlements across the West Bank in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention which expressly bans the relocation of the occupying nation's civilian population to the land of the occupied.
