A disabled Palestinian was injured yesterday after he was attacked by Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

Local sources told the media that the settlers attacked Youssef Hajja and Samir Ahmed Seif in Nablus' Burqa village, adding that they had beaten Seif despite the fact that is disabled.

The sources added that the Red Crescent transferred Seif to hospital for treatment.

The incident comes days after Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man in the city of Nablus following a raid on his home, in addition to killing another and wounding 70 others during a protest against illegal settlement construction in the Nablus-district town of Beita.

Settlers in the illegal settlement of Homish were recently reported to have escalated their attacks against Palestinians and their properties in Burqa.
