JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers assaulted a Palestinian man from Jerusalem while he was at work in the central West Bank village of Turmusayya on Wednesday afternoon.

Imad Dauwod al-Joulani, 49, was attacked by around 25 Israeli settlers while he was working with a concrete truck, a relative said.

Kayed al-Rajabi said that they beat him with stones and sticks until a nearby driver who saw the incident fired a gunshot in the air to disperse them. The driver's nationality was identified as Russian.

Al-Joulani suffered a deep cut in the head and eye as well as fractures in his jaw and teeth. He was taken to Hadassah hospital in Ein Kerem following the attack.

Turmusayya sits immediately south of the Jewish settlement of Shiloh halfway between Ramallah and Nablus.

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.

Not like Qusra. When it's 25:1, Zionists are pretty brave.

Totally Disgusting. These "settler" terrorists need expelling at the very least. I still cannot credit the silence which seems to surround the crimes of these people, and their genocidal acts towards the Indigenous Palestinians - religious persuasions notwithstanding... Such Spiritual Bastardy...

@Wendy:Yes,you Aussies are well versed in Ethnic Cleansing arent you.Maybe do those Jews what your forbears did to Aboriginals?Maybe place bounties on scalps? @Colin:As a foreigner I dont expect you to know but Qusra was found to be an Arab on Jewish crime,not the reverse-just as it had been in March 2013, and again a week after the incident you refer to.Perhaps your bias is not allowing to see OR understand what is taking place.
