Settlers attack man near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Settlers attacked a man west of Bethlehem on Saturday, causing moderate injuries, locals said.

A group of settlers threw stones at Ahmad al-Zaglool at a road junction near Betar Illit settlement, witnesses told Ma’an.

Al-Zaglool, who is from the nearby village of Husan, was moderately wounded and taken to hospital for treatment.

Settlers regularly attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank and are rarely punished by Israeli authorities, who locals accuse of failing to intervene despite being present at many incidents.

Annual figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.
