RAMALLAH (AFP) - Israeli settlers in the West Bank stoned the car of a Palestinian photographer working for AFP, slightly injuring him, as he was on his way to cover a story Friday.

The photographer said several of around 100 settlers who were gathered at the side of the road threw stones at his car, cracking the windscreen and lightly injuring him in the face and hands.

Israeli soldiers on the scene did not intervene, he added.

In photographs of the incident, four settlers are seen running, three of them with pistols. Another shows the settlers stoning the car while the soldiers watched.

After the attack, soldiers moved the settlers on.

He and other journalists in a separate vehicle were on their way to cover Palestinian demonstrations in the nearby Jalazun refugee camp, north of the West Bank administrative center of Ramallah.

The AFP photographer, Abbas Momani, said he planned to file a complaint with Israeli police, while the Foreign Press Association said its lawyer would also look into the case.

Jewish settlers often attack Palestinian cars, the same way as Palestinian youths stone Israeli vehicles near Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

'Jewish settlers often attack Palestinian cars, the same way as Palestinian youths stone Israeli vehicles near Jewish settlements in the West Bank.' Not really. When was the last time Palestinian youths were allowed to be armed and enjoyed the protection of the Israeli police and army?

Look closely see the guns.If these Europeans were chosen by God they wouldn't need guns to protect themselves because God would have protected them. The truth is these occupying Europeans invaded the holy land and are holding it and it's people hostage. Don't worry you have short memory's, Gods wrath is nigh and you will pay for your crimes against humanity.

How often does the IDF arrest and or jail Israeli vs Palestinian stone throwers? Seeing how the IDF has been photographed protecting settlers while they attack Palestinians and their property let me wager a guess.

The settlers are the best thing to happen to the Israeli PR Farce that is a "western democracy." They're so stupid that they don't even realize that they're actually helping the BDS campaign & events all around the world such as Israeli Apartheid week. Take a wild guess what the Associated Foreign Press is going to right about..."illegal riots" by kids in Jalazun or Israeli settler's attacks against journalists with the total impunity of the "most moral army"? Keep up the great work, boys.

@#2, Ok. What about the 51% of Israelis (and "settlers") who are Mizrachim, whose families lived in Arab countries for 2000 years and have never had a single relative/ancestor step foot in Europe? Your are just racist garbage.

Malone, yes, but the settlers are not shot and killed. For Palestinians it means death.
