Extremist Israeli settlers burnt Palestinian vehicles and crops on Friday between the villages of Turmus Ayya and Al-Mughayyir, northeast of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

Local sources reported aggression of Israeli settlers from Adei Ad illegal settlement on Palestinians after burning the vehicles and crops in both Palestinian villages.

A Palestinian youth was wounded in the head after being shot, and four others were also injured when the Israeli settlers threw stones at Palestinians in Turmus Ayya.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian farmers and prevented them from ploughing their farms in the village of Sanjal, north of Ramallah.

It is worth noting that the village of Al-Mughayyir has been under strict Israeli closure for 15 consecutive days, forcing residents to take long and difficult routes to reach their workplaces.
