A group of Jewish settlers raided Bourin, a Palestinian village south of Nablus, and shot at the residences, injuring four Palestinians, including a journalist who was severely beaten.
Ghassan Daghlas, the Palestinian official responsible for the settlement file in the northern West Bank, said that armed settlers from the nearby settlement ‘Brakha’ attacked the village and attempted to take over a house in order to raise a flag on top of it.
The Palestinian wounded was transferred to a hospital in Nablus city.
Israeli forces, meanwhile, raided the village, shot and launched tear gas at residents, causing the suffocation of dozens, including four journalists who were covering the attacks.
