NABLUS (Ma'an) -- An eight-year-old child was treated for shock on Wednesday following a settler attack in the Nablus village of Burin, a Palestinian Authority official said.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank bank, told Ma'an that a group of settlers from Yizhar attacked the Boursli family home with rocks and empty bottles.
Sima Boursli, 8, suffered from shock following the attack and was taken to Rafidia hospital for treatment.
The settler attack took place just hours after international ambassadors and consuls had visited the village.
In 2012, there were 353 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.
