NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of masked men attacked the former minister of prisoners' affairs Wasfi Kabha in the northern West Bank district of Jenin on Wednesday, according to a Hamas statement.
The statement said the perpetrators stopped Kabha's car at gun point, assaulted him with sticks and stones, and smashed his car.
As a result of the attack, the former minister suffered a fractured arm and several bruises and was taken to Jenin Hospital, the statement said.
Head of the Palestinian legislative council, Aziz Dweik, condemned the attack and said it was done by a group of outlaws who only aim to create conflicts.
