Palestinian youth shot, injured as Israeli settlers attack Burin

April 13, 2019 10:42 A.M. (Updated: April 13, 2019 11:59 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian youth in the Burin village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, as he attempted to prevent an Israeli settler attack, on late Friday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that the Palestinian youth, Ubada al-Najjar, was shot and injured with Israeli live fire in the thigh as Israeli settlers attacked Burin village.

Daghlas confirmed that al-Najjar was transferred to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus City for medical treatment.

Al-Najjar’s medical condition was described as stable.

Daghlas pointed out that eyewitnesses from the Burin village said that allegedly an Israeli settler, not an Israeli soldier, shot al-Najjar.

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.

Since the occupation of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 1967, more than 600,000 Israelis have moved into Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, in violation of international law.

The estimated 196 government recognized Israeli settlements scattered across the Palestinian territory are all considered illegal under international law.
