HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Saturday attacked a farmer and his sons in the southern West Bank near Beit Ummar, a popular committee spokesman said.

Muhammad Ayad Awad, spokesman for the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Ummar, said that around 15 Israeli settlers attacked Muhammad Abd al-Hamid Jaber al-Salibi and his sons in the Wad Abu Rish area near the Israeli settlement of Bat Ayin while they were working on their land.

The settlers hurled rocks, but no were casualties reported, Awad said.

He added that Israeli forces came to the scene and forced the farmer and his sons to leave the area at gunpoint.

An Israeli army spokesman did not have any information regarding the incident.

In 2013, there were 399 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 do not lead to an indictment.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

Violence causes violence. Back and forth, around and around violence goes. Maybe in another 60 years... or maybe never... violence will stop.

Maybe, in fairness, ANOTHER Jewish-dominated state should be set up elsewhere. One wouldn't want people to start thinking Jews necessarily act like Israelis when they get the chance.

What is the matter with the Palestinians? Why don't they just go out there and HUG every settler they find.....Not.

100% of attacks, murders, suicide bombings against Israelis do not lead to an indictment.

But the crushing boredom... There is no work in the settlements.. Nothing to do... But listen to the teachings and propaganda.. Smack some goyem around for some amusement.. Good fun.. All while protected by heavily armed solders.. Such a sick and perverted society...
