Foad Emour, a local activist, told WAFA that a group of Jewish settlers broke into the village and let their dogs attack Imad and Saleh Abu Awwad, two brothers and local residents, causing them injuries. The two were later rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.
Last night, a group of Jewish settlers attacked with stones a bus carrying Palestinian passengers in the French Hill neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem, according to local sources.

Eyewitnesses told WAFA that the settlers pelted stones and empty bottles at the bus, smashing its windshields and causing minor injuries among the passengers.
Israeli settler violence is commonplace across the occupied Palestinian territories and is rarely prosecuted by the Israeli occupation authorities.
