A Palestinian infant was seriously hurt on Monday night when Jewish settlers attacked his parents’ car in the occupied West Bank and sprayed it with pepper gas, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
Ghassan Daghlas, a local official, told WAFA that Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian commuters on a road linking Jenin and Nablus districts and pepper-spraying one of the cars, causing the infant to suffocate.

Illegal Jewish settlers, protected by Israeli soldiers, regularly attack Palestinian commuters and villages in the occupied territories, and they are rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
