An elderly Palestinian farmer was arrested on Tuesday by Israeli forces after being assaulted by illegal Jewish settlers while working on his land in the northern West Bank, the official news agency WAFA reported.

Ghassan Daghlas, a local activist, told WAFA that Jewish settlers from the illegal Yitzhar settlement attacked an elderly farmer while working in this land in the eastern part of the town of Urif, near Nablus.

The man was later arrested by the Israeli occupation soldiers who intervened to protect the settlers.

Daghlas said that town residents rushed to help the farmer and fend off the settlers who attacked the Palestinian homes but were confronted by Israeli soldiers who fired teargas at them.

  1. Israel’s IDF is the most aggressive terrorist organization on earth and should be cold-stopped by the rest of the world, condemned and brought to justice in International Court, every last IDF member and their overseers.
